Thank you to all those involved with this year’s Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race, it was great to have 18 yachts back on the water for the first offshore race in Australia since restrictions lifted. It wouldn’t have been possible without the meticulous planning of the Race Office, generous race sponsor Club Marine, and the dedicated RQ volunteers.

Congratulations to Commodore, Captain Barry Cuneo and the crew of ‘Envy Scooters’ for taking home the top prize in the Line Honours, PHS Overall, IRC Overall, and IRC Division 1 divisions. Congratulations also to Ian Richardson, Russell Miller and crew on ‘Bazinga’ for nabbing the top spot in the Short-Handed PHS and IRC Division 2 divisions.

Despite two retirees, it was reported that all competitors had a great time. Best of luck to all those continuing the migration North to compete in Airlie Beach Race Week kicking off Friday 07 August 2020.


Please enjoy a selection of photos taken from the start line by the wonderful Beryl Roberts.
