Gladstone Ports Corporation
We are honoured and proud to have the Gladstone Ports Corporation as our major title Sponsor commencing with the 2021 Gladstone Ports Corporation Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race. The Gladstone Ports Corporation has been an invaluable supporter for many years, providing services, including the safe and appropriately managed berthing of arriving competing vessels and the provision of complementary welcoming and well-equipped marina facilities. We are excited to see this support not only continue, but grow into a full suite of financial and additional service support across the board, ensuring that this iconic Queensland event continues to evolve and enrich the community in all of its time honoured ways.
The Gladstone Regional Council
Again we are thrilled to have the support of the Gladstone Regional Council for 2021 enabling us to bring the Live Stream coverage of the Race to the broader public, not only in Australia, but to Sailing enthusiasts throughout the world.
Show casing the Gladstone Region with its annual Harbour Festival, at the destination, tourists by land, sea or air, can understand why Gladstone is the perfect base and gateway from which to take in the wonders of its hinterland, coastline, and all that the Southern Barrier Reef offers to visitors from all over Australia and the world.
The Gladstone Ports Corporation Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race has enjoyed a long unbroken partnership with The Courier-Mail, Queensland’s Premier Newspaper and digital news service, since the commencement of the Race in 1949. Today we are as excited as ever to be partnering with The Courier-Mail via its print and digital platforms thus enabling us to bring this iconic event to Queenslanders and the wider public. Additionally this coverage extends through the variety of News Corp’s other masthead Media outlets throughout regional and metropolitan Australia. The perpetual trophy “The Courier-Mail Cup” is of course the Holy Grail over which competing Yachts seek to have their name added, as overall Race winner on corrected time (IRC).
Official Time Keeper to the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race
The Gladstone Ports Corporation Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race is exited to announce a new partnership with Adina Watches as the official time keeper commencing with the 2021 Race.
The Adina partnership will see the overall winning crew (on IRC handicap) presented each with a very special edition Adina watch. So special in fact, that the only way to own one is to be a part of the winning crew. The actual watch is being kept under wraps until the race start but Adina Watches, General Manager Grant Menzies has assured us it is “something spectacular, that the sailors will wear with pride!” and with Adina pedigree for building water resistant watches, it will be keenly anticipated.
