Founded in 1948, the Club was originally formed by a group of passionate sailors for the purpose of hosting the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race. This thrilling event held over Easter has become one of the major highlights of the Australian sailing calendar, anticipated equally by the participants and the many thousands of spectators.
The Surf to City Yacht Race from Southport to Brisbane, the Bribie Cup and the Vintage Yacht Regatta have since also become firm fixtures in the Club’s portfolio of prestigious annual sailing events.
