Description

The Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race is hosted by Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS) and is the clubs signature offshore event.

The race was launched in 2007 and the inaugural event finished at Great Keppel Island. However this finish line would be short lived with the island closing for major reconstruction and the difficulty in anchoring boats in the shallows around the island.

In 2010 the race attracted high performance yachts Black Jack (Reichel Pugh 66), Wild Oats X (Reichel Pugh 66) and Lahana (98' Maxi). With these key entries, the race is set to become one of the biggest offshore races on the east coast of Australia.

The 348NM race will start east of Green Island on Brisbane's beautiful Moreton Bay. The yachts will cruise along the shorelines of the world famous Fraser Island before crossing the Tropic of Capricorn bound for Keppel Bay Marina.
