Carnarvon Windfest is a non-profit sporting event association made up of 7 committee members and 15 - 20 event volunteers. This year's Carnarvon Windfest was held over a four-day period 20-23 January 2022 as competitive windsurfing, wing foil, kiteboarding, SUP and Windrush catamaran racing event. 

This was the third year of the event, which aims to capitalise on the region's consistent summer winds to bring competitors and visitors from WA and intrastate to compete, bringing awareness and economic benefit to local businesses during our recognised off-peak season. 

From an organiser's perspective, the event was a huge success for us, in spite of the harsh weather conditions.  2022 saw us double our participant numbers year on year to 114 competitors and 28 kids and adults registered for our free lessons on Sunday morning.

We managed to complete ten race events over four days, which was only possible thanks to the support of our dedicated volunteers and several local businesses.  The free festival aims to provide a free community event with family-friendly entertainment, children's activities and multicultural food stalls whilst promoting this recreational sporting event. The 2022 Carnarvon Windfest festival attracted over 400 visitors which was held at the Carnarvon yacht club.
