Prix d'Elegance

How to participate in the Prix d'Elegance at the Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2017

Two competing yachts at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2017 will each be going home with an impressive trophy without having started in a race on the day.

As in previous years, the same two categories will apply for the Prix d’ Elegance:

  • The Best Presented Yacht and Crew (yacht in first-class trim and crew in matching uniforms)
  • The Best Fun-Themed Yacht and Crew (let your imagination run wild)

The trophies will go to the crews that win their chosen category in the competition, which will be staged before the start of racing on Thursday 24 August 2017.

The parade course

On departing Hamilton Marina and entering Dent Passage turn immediately to starboard and cruise past the Flag Deck of Hamilton Island Yacht Club, as close as possible...without running aground.

A guide

Ingenuity and creative genius are the two elements that always set the winners apart in this competition

The best-presented yacht

The yacht perfectly presented, and the crew in matching uniforms lining the deck etc. Can be subtly themed

Best-themed yacht

We’ve had political satire, tropical island settings, bubble baths and even Michael Jackson as themes for this section
