Brisbane to Hamilton Island Yacht Race / 530nm / 7 Days / CAT 2 Ocean Race
After winning Division 2 on both PHS and IRC in the inaugural race in 2019, we are back for the 2nd edition of the Brisbane to Hamilton Island Yacht Race hosted by the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS) and Hamilton Island Yacht Club.
The 530 nautical mile race will start on Friday just east of Green Island on Brisbane’s beautiful Moreton Bay. The yachts will head north along the shorelines of the world-famous Fraser Island before weaving their way through the islands, reefs and big ocean currents inside the world-famous Great Barrier Reef, bound for Hamilton Island Marina.
You will join a racing crew of 8 people for this epic ocean race north, along the eastern shores of Fraser Island and through the Whitsunday Islands before crossing the finish line at Hamilton Island. With a fleet of more than 30 yachts expected, this promises to be an exciting 2nd edition of this new Australian ocean race.
