Upcoming Events

Adventures of a Sailor Girl loves to travel to sailing and water sport events to touch base with the competitors, sponsors and volunteers to spread the word about their fantastic adventures.

Check out our upcoming events, and an amazing list of past events that we have covered “on the ground” since our business kicked off in 2014. We cover a lot more than what is listed here, these are just the ones that we covered in person!

Please note: some events employ us to attend, some can’t afford us but we consider to be important so we organise our own sponsors to help us cover them – if we have interest to generate income, or remaining funds from prior regattas to put towards the promotion of our sport. Some events we are competing at so we cover them while racing ourselves!
