June 2018 marks the 28th running of the Australian Women's Keelboat Regatta. 
Held annually at Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron in St Kilda over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June, the AWKR is a notoriously fun, often cold and always very competitive regatta.
Over the past few years the AWKR has consistently attracted over 160 sailors and their supporters from across Australia and New Zealand. This year we aim to make the event bigger and better than ever….. and we would love to welcome you onboard.
