Watch the start of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race
Logo for the Festival
Now in its 22nd year, the Bluewater Festival celebrates the start of the flagship Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race on Good Friday, 19 April 2019. After the starter's gun has sounded to the 71st Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, the boats will follow a 308 nautical miles course to land adjacent to Spinnaker Park in the Gladstone Harbour.
From land, visitors can watch the flotilla of boats skip along the water from the landmark Shorncliffe Pier while also sampling a host of free activities and entertainment.
