"I could not think of a better race course for multihull’s and keel boats. Warm water and I am promised the wind in the right direction and we arrive in the perfect location. What’s not to love about this race." - Gavin Brady, skipper of MOD70 Beau Geste

A WORD FROM RACE MANAGEMENT


"The Brisbane to Hamilton Island Yacht Race provides a unique opportunity to race in a warm water Coastal race to a fantastic destination. Further, the race distance provides a challenge to the sailors, and especially the Navigators.  

For our Short Handed and Multihull Entrants especially, this race is the premier event open to them in this country in terms of distance, race course, and destination.  

The inaugural Brisbane to Hamilton Island Yacht Race will be an event not to be missed!"
