Sailing season is already well underway, and we plan to make the rounds of some great regattas this season—at the wheel of various killer cars, of course.

In the calendar for August is one of the best: Audi Hamilton Island Race Week, sponsored by the German automaker in celebration of speed, style and great engineering, be it on land or water.

Some very fast yachts go head-to-head in the series of sailing contests, which constitute Australia’s largest offshore regatta, on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef.

May the best boat win…
