Hervey Bay Regatta – ideal for Corsair trimarans!

  The Bay to Bay trailable yacht race is an annual sailing event held on the first weekend in May each year, in the Great Sandy National Park.

The Bay to Bay race was originally conceived by members of the Hervey Bay Sailing Club on 18 April 1980. Originally suggested as a one-day trailer yacht race from Tin Can Bay to…
