About the Race

Start Time: March 30 2018

Race Record: 20 Hours, 24 Minutes, 50 Seconds set in 2004

The sixty nine 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 historic 70th edition of this 308 nautical mile ocean classic will start on Good Friday, March 30 2018. 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 2017, Queensland Racer ‘Black Jack’ took an impressive line honours victory but the winner of the race and the prestigious Courier Mail Cup, one of the oldest perpetual trophies in Australia that has been competed for on a continual basis, was 'Ichi Ban'.
