About the Race

The sixty eight year history of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race has made it one of Australia’s flagship offshore yacht races. It is an icon of Queensland and the highest profile Easter Weekend sporting event, setting sail from Moreton Bay on Good Friday annually.

The sixty ninth edition of this 308 nautical mile ocean classic will start on Good Friday, April 14 2017. From the start at Shorncliffe, yachts proceed via a mark off Redcliffe Point to the North West Channel up to Caloundra and through to Gladstone.

Entrants will include the countries best Queensland based race boats as well as interstate rivals.  In 2016, Queensland Racer ‘Black Jack’ took an impressive double winning both line honours and topping the timesheets on handicap to win the prestigious Courier Mail Cup, one of the oldest perpetual trophies in Australia that has been competed for on a continual basis.

The 69th running of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race is a landmark year for several reasons and it looks like skippers agree. Entries for the race do not close until later this month but already the fleet size is well above entry levels seen in the last five years and could go past the mid-forties if talk around the marinas is to be believed, an increase of fifty percent.
