About the Race

Start Time: April 19 2019 

Race Record: 16 Hours, 53 Minutes, 57 Seconds set in 2018 by Black Jack 100

The seventy 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 71st edition of this 308 nautical mile ocean classic will start on Good Friday, April 19, 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 2018, Queensland Racer ‘Black Jack’ took an impressive line honours victory smashing the 14 year old race record in the process 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' who backed up their win from 2017
