Every August, spectators and yachties from around the globe head to Hamilton Island for Hamilton Island Race Week - Australia’s largest offshore keelboat regatta.
MHYC members are no exception with many migrating north to participate in this popular event, including our Commodore, Peter Lewis, and Vice Commodore Racing , Geoff Charters.
Peter and Geoff would like to invite MHYC members and their friends to join them for celebration drinks after racing on Tuesday 20th August upstairs at the pub at the Marina from 6.00pm.
MHYC boats participating in the event include Toy Box 2 (Ian Box), Highly Sprung (Mark Spring) and Gordon Ketelbey's TP52 Zen, all in the highly competitive IRC Division.
Competing in the Hamilton Island class are Mortgage Choice Rumba (Kerry Burke, Robb Carr and Stephanie Cook) , Llama II (Jon Linton), Flying Fish Let Loose (Russell Bonner), Thirlmere (Mike Logan) and Zeusus ( Laurie McAllister). Martyn Colebrook, having just retruned from his efforts at Fastnet, is racing for the first time on his Catermaran, Flo, in the Hamilton Island Mutliclass division.
Also flying the MHYC flag at the event is our dedicated volunteer Grant Breeze, who has been an integral part of the Race Managment Team at Hamilton Island for many years.
We wish all those competing the best of luck in their endevours and a safe journey back to Middle Harbour.
