Welcome to the 25th Bribie Classic Boat Regatta 24th to 26th May 2024
Each May the Bribie Classic Boat Regatta has taken place on the Pumicestone Passage at Bribie Island.
Our beautiful island celebrates a rich maritime history within the backdrop of a post-card perfect coastline and hinterland.
The traditional owners of Bribie Island are the Kabi Kabi and Joondoburri people.
Bribie Island was known as Yarun, which means ‘Hunting Ground’ and the name Ngunda for the people was recorded by some early Europeans to the area.
The pristine beauty of the calm blue waters of the Pumicestone Passage in Queensland’s Moreton Bay City is our beautiful natural stage ready and set for your enjoyment and healthy recreation.
Discovered by Matthew Flinders on his 1799 exploration north from Sydney on HM sloop “Norfolk”, he landed on Bribie Island on 16 July.
Today Bribie Island is about an hours drive north of Brisbane and the ‘Pumicestone Passage’ at Bribie Island is a perfect setting for assembling a fleet of classic maritime vessels. The Bribie Classic Boat Regatta is the local way to express a laid-back Bribie Island lifestyle and tells a story about the rich maritime environment and heritage that we are proud to share.
