Whitsunday Regional Council has today approved a $20,000 gold sponsorship of the 2016 Airlie Beach Race Week – Festival of Sailing to be held from 12 to 19 August.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said that Council will also provide in-kind support to the value of $5000 through the waiver of fees and charges associated with the event.
“Airlie Beach Race Week is one of the biggest events on the calendar and we are very pleased to provide support to the Whitsunday Sailing Club to ensure its ongoing success,” Cr Willcox said.
“Last year Airlie Beach Race Week contributed in excess of $1.1 million dollars to the local economy so the benefits to the region and the local economy are significant,” he said.
“In addition, the number of participants and visitors Airlie Beach Race Week attracts to the region provides a regular annual boost to local mainland businesses and offshore activities,” he said.
