The Annual Hervey Bay Boat Club Bay to Bay Trailable Yacht Race sailed over the Queensland Labour Day long weekend is a two leg approximately 84km long two day Category 5 (limited rescue availability in daylight hours) race for eligible (NoR 4) monohull and multihull trailable yachts.

The Bay to Bay Yacht Race is through the pristine Queensland waters of the Tin Can Bay Inlet, the Wide Bay Harbour, the Great Sandy Strait and Hervey Bay from north of Snapper Creek Tin Can Inlet to east of the Urangan Boat Harbour Hervey Bay with an overnight stop in Garrys Anchorage, located between Fraser Island and Stewart Island.

You will sail in the company of a large fleet of trailable yachts through the largely remote, unspoilt and truly spectacular wilderness area of the Great Sandy Marine Park including the Great Sandy Strait Ramsar Wetland Area, the Fraser Island World Heritage Area and the Great Sandy National Park.

All of these areas provide critical habitat to the endangered resident and migratory loggerhead marine turtle, dugong and prolific bird life.

The race is Queensland’s largest trailable yacht race and one of the three largest trailable yacht passage races in Australia.
