Annual Bay to Bay Trailable Yacht Race – Image Lee Bubb
Come and see the Bay to Bay trailable yachts set off from Tin Can Bay Yacht Club on April 29 to sail this approximately 90km along the marine and land habitats of the Great Sandy Strait.
Leg 1 is Tin Can Bay to Garrys Anchorage 11am to 4pm on Saturday, overnight between Stewart Island and Fraser Island.
Leg 2 from Garrys Anchorage to Hervey Bay 7.30am to 3.30pm, is on Sunday April 30, with trophy presentation at 8pm on Sunday at the Hervey Bay Boat Club.
The event follows a course through what is essentially a sparsely populated wilderness area and conservation park. Buffer and marine park zones are bounded by the Great Sandy National Park World Heritage Area on Fraser Island to the east and the mainland, including a military reserve, to the west.
The Bay to Bay is an inclusive event that values entries from all levels of competitive racing and cruising sailors.
