winterbash 2020 Humpybong Yacht Club


Recommended Posts


Over the weekend of the 25th and 26th of July  the Humpybong Yacht Club will conduct its fifth annual WinterBash regatta for yachts, multihulls, trailer sailers, off-the-beach dinghies and catamarans. In addition this year, we are hosting the South East Queensland Nacra titles.

Humpybong Yacht Club is a family focused sailing club and we actively encourage competitors of all experience levels to take part. We have advice from a full range for boats from trimarans down to lasers that they will be coming; from Bundaberg in the north to Murwillumbah in the south. We are expecting a big fleet, especislly wiht the Nacras adding spice.

The first day is an all in one course series of triangular races in Bramble Bay, It is followed by the WinterBash marathon on Day Two. The marathon race will see boats race across the Bramble Bay and back up the Redcliffe peninsula before returning to finsh at the Woody Point Jetty.

Juniors will a multi race format Day One and two endurance courses on Day Two. Parent permission forms for all under 18 years old will be required.

If you are not racing and would like a day on the water with the fleets or know someone that would; please call Peter Bradbury on 0412 695 146

As with all major events at Humpybong, overnight camping will be available to competitors and their families and the canteen will be open for the duration of the event. Alternatively, look for other accommodation options here.

This years regatta will be complicated by the CoVID-19 restrictions placed on all events by the Government. The HYC CoVID-19 Management plan forms part of the NOR and it is aexpected that all competitors and support teams will familiarise themselves with teh requiremtns before the eveetn. It is important for everyone,s safety.
