Nautilus Marine Insurance announces partnership with Hamilton Island Race Week

Nautilus Marine Insurance is proud to announce a new, multi-year partnership with the internationally acclaimed Hamilton Island Race Week.

Race Week dates are 20-27 August 2022 and anticipation is high for this year’s event. It returns after a two year hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions, and the 2022 entrants line-up is easily one of the regatta’s most impressive fleets to date.

In announcing the new partnership Lyndon Turner, CEO of Nautilus Marine Insurance, said, “Nautilus Marine Insurance are incredibly excited and proud to be partnering with Hamilton Island Race Week. This is an ideal way to show our yacht insurance expertise and our ongoing support of the whole yachting community. There is a great alignment between this event and Nautilus Marine Insurance. We share the similar values of expertise, quality, passion and celebrating sailing, when racing or relaxing! Through this partnership we want to celebrate the passion of the yachties who participate, and recognise the dedication put into preparing for such an event.

At Nautilus Marine Insurance, we are similarly passionate and take great pride in our marine insurance expertise and our commitment to supporting boat owners with quality coverage and strength of security.”

Hamilton Island CEO Peter Brulisauer commented, “We are delighted to partner with Nautilus Marine Insurance as we welcome back the yachting community to Hamilton Island and Australia’s largest offshore keelboat regatta. We have been overwhelmed by the response from the sailing community and spectators alike and look forward to welcoming them back for an amazing week of racing and exciting onshore events.”
