The Beard Season Skin Check Tent

This year at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week we have teamed up with Beard Season and the Queensland Institute of Dermatology (QIDerm) to offer quick and easy skin checks, at no cost to you!
Beard Season is a non-profit charity run by Jimmy Niggles Esq. A bloke you might have seen around the docks and dinners at previous race weeks. He's been growing his beard ever since his friend Wes Bonny passed away from melanoma - Australia's national cancer. Everyone he meets because of his rich mahogany neck mane he has challenged to get a skin check. To the point where Beard Season now saves an average of a life a week! So this year, he is absolutely thrilled to be offering you and your crew this ambitious, new initiative.
The skin checks will be conducted by QIDerm’s qualified dermatologists and take about 10-15 minutes.
These kind of expert consultations usually cost over $200 so this is a very special opportunity.
Especially for sailors who spend so much time in the elements.
The team will be working from 6.45am to 5.00pm.
Appointment times are on a first come first served basis, so be sure to book in your session below.
