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.
