SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week (SMIRW) opened registrations at 10am today 1st March,
within 15mins we were at full berthing capacity with 70 boats registered.
The yacht “Carpe Diem” seized the day and were the first yacht entered at 10.01am – they have
attended the event before in 2017, so its fantastic to have them back on the water for this years
The Magnetic Island Marina is at full berthing capacity for this event, we have started to take a
waitlist and hope that more berths may open up for us to get those excited yachties in that want
to be part of the action. More than a dozen yachts are already on the waitlist and the phone is
off the hook with enquiries.
We know the effort that boat owners, their crews, family and friends make to travel up here and
support Race Week.
Support of this unique and much loved event, which is centred around Peppers Blue on Blue
Resort, is important in many ways. Each and every person involved in Race Week contributes
to building the economy and social aspects of the region.
On that note, this event is not possible without the strong support of our 30 partners, including
major partners SeaLink, Tourism and Events Queensland, Townsville City Council, Peppers
Blue on Blue and Townsville Airport.
The event injects over $1.2million into the local region and provides such a fantastic event for
the community and businesses on Magnetic Island.
SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week 31st August to 6th September 2023.
