Cape Upstart Stopover

SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week 2018 competitors

Register for the Cape Upstart BBQ Party Stopover!

We are back for another year and are pleased to invite all 2018 SMIRW Competitors to our Cape Upstart BBQ! 

The Cape Upstart stopover this year, will be held on Tuesday 28th August 6.00pm. After Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island Race weeks this is a welcome break for boats that are heading north to compete in the 2018 SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week.

As the venue is remote and not accessible by road – this year we have a strict limit of 100 people. So the first 100 people to register and pay on line to attend this great night! The cost of the BBQ is $15pp and we would appreciate payment on registration.   

To register, go to the Cape Upstart Stopover  on our website, and fill in your details, including if you have a dinghy or not as we will be offering a limited tender service.  Please note Cape Upstart is only accessible by boat so this invitation is for competitors sailing from Airlie Beach or Hamilton island.

Below is information on the anchorage, the best location for dinghies and where the BBQ will be held.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Townsville Yacht Club team on 4772 1192 with any queries.

See you at ‘the Cape’!
