Shaw and Partners is proud to announce its continued support as the headline sponsor for the Shaw and Partners WA Race Week, marking the 5th consecutive year of our Naming Rights sponsorship.


Once again, the Shaw and Partners WA Race Week is set to be the pinnacle event on this year’s ocean ski paddling calendar.
