When 14 people sat down to plan a trailer yacht race from Tin Can Bay to Hervey Bay on April 18, 1980, they began a sailing saga that became the biggest event of its type in Queensland- and second only in Australia.
The Hervey Bay Sailing Club invites entries from eligible Trailable Yachts to sail this approximately 84km long Category 5 event with limited rescue boat availability on the waters of the Great Sandy Strait.
The Annual Bay to Bay Trailable Yacht Race is now an annual sailing event for monohull and multihull trailable yachts conducted by the Hervey Bay Sailing Club on the first weekend in May each year.
Entrants sail in the company of some 140 plus trailable yachts through the largely unspoilt and truly spectacular Great Sandy Marine Park and past and through the Great Sandy Strait Ramsar Wetland Area and the Fraser Island World Heritage Area and past the Great Sandy National Park.
Dates: 5th – 6th May 2018
