6th Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race 2012
The signature offshore event of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron
This year the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron will celebrate the sixth anniversary of the Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race (B2K).
From its humble beginnings, the race had the potential to be a major event on the eastern Australian offshore calendar. In 2007 B2K attracted 17 yachts and in 2010 the number expanded to 35. This year the race organisers are hopeful that 50 entrants will start on Friday 3rd August at 12 noon.
Club Marine are back on board as the principle sponsor having been associated with the race since the inaugural race.
The 348 nautical mile races starts east of Green Island on Brisbane’s Moreton Bay and finishes off the break wall at Keppel Bay Marina which hosts the sailors once they hit the shore.
