Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race- Light but fun

From the following Sail-World article submitted by Peter Hackett:

In the Allyacht Spars Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, the multihulls enjoyed a spectacular day on Moreton Bay with a spectator fleet in all forms of dress enjoying the view.

The predictable soft winds delayed the start until 11.30 am and as the wind direction settled, the blue book was thrown to the wind as more barges than on a dutch canal converged on the one or two boats that were on the right side of the line facing in the right direction. Individual recalls and some nearly angry words helped the fleet get away in the five knot northeasterly.
