The 40th, and last Great Whitsunday Fun Race is a fun event for all types of boats around a triangular course set in Pioneer Bay & a big party ashore afterwards, with prize giving & dancing till late. A must event.  

Boats may be handicapped by the Race Committee based on criteria as applicable to cruising boats.  For example, boats with a dinghy on davits, or a dinghy towed behind, or similar items familiar to cruising boats may receive time credits applied to their elapsed time.  Likewise, boats with exotic (non-dacron) sails, scrubbed hull or boats that are set up primarily to race may receive time penalties.  The fastest elapsed time after application of penalties will be the winner.  Any decision by the handicap committee will be final unless challenged (fees apply)

Prizes will  include 1st in each division, Miss Figurehead, Best dressed boat plus additional prizes as determined by the Organising Committee.

Half entry fees will be donated to Prostate Cancer through the Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club (SICYC).
