An introduction to Racing at QCYC
Our location is the perfect vantage point for any person living on the north side of the Brisbane River to begin and develop their journey in the sport of Sailing.
QCYC organises and hosts a number of significant yacht events including the Gladstone Ports Corporation Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, the Gladstone Ports Corporation Surf to City Yacht Race, the Bribie Cup and the Vintage Yacht Regatta.
In addition to these signature events, the Club has a full calendar of winter and summer sailing. The Gladstone Ports Corporation Winter Series is keenly contested and provides many idyllic days of balmy sailing on beautiful Moreton Bay. In short, it’s the optimal choice for the active and enthusiastic sailor who thrives on year-round competition.
Opening day on the first Saturday in September sees a fleet of club boats on parade. A hugely enjoyable social occasion, it heralds the start of another highly anticipated season of racing. From then on, it’s full on racing!
The first race of the sailing year is the historic Bribie Cup. The Bribie Cup Yacht Race is held in September each year and is supported by Bribie Island Yacht Club. This is a day race open to monohull and multihull yachts that starts off Shorncliffe and finishes in the Bribie Passage.
