Pleasure sailing

Tasmania has a long history of hobby and pleasure sailing.

That continues to this day, demonstrated by annual events such as the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race and the Royal Hobart Regatta.

These events, and the people, clubs, boats, and shipbuilders of Tasmanian sailing culture connect Tasmania’s maritime past to its present.

Discover their stories, and the stories of their predecessors at the Maritime Museum Tasmania, where we know the sea is just as much about play as it is about work.
