The SheSails Award was introduced in all in States in 2018, after being held in Victoria for a number of years. The Award recognises an individual, group, class or club that makes an outstanding contribution, promotion and/or administration of female participation in sailing. The contribution may be in areas of, but not limited to, administration, coaching, leadership, planning, events, regattas, program development, participation, school sailing and retention.
One of Queensland's most popular women's sailing events, the 2022 Mooloolaba Women's Keelboat Regatta filled in 24 hours and gave women experience both on and off the water, with the opportunity to helm or act in leadership roles in event management, admin, promotion, training and club/crew preparation.
