Hamilton Island Race Week 2021 Update 10 August 2021 Our thoughts are with the millions of Australians who continue to make significant sacrifices every day amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It is with considerable disappointment; the Hamilton Island Executive team has announced the cancellation of Hamilton Island Race Week 2021. We have considered every option available to us in our efforts to stage Race Week this year. However, we have had to consider the safety of our competitors, our island community, and our guests. With the event just three weeks away it was time to make a definite call. Hence our decision yesterday. We understand this is deeply disappointing news for many, not just for participants but also for the Whitsunday’s region, for which Race Week is an economic boost. We thank everyone for their exceptional support for Hamilton Island Race Week and look forward to welcoming them next year.
