Annual Interclub Bay Cruise

In 1976 the late John Hattrick, whilst Commodore of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, initiated an annual bay cruise to promote safe family boating and good will among the boating fraternity.

Four decades on, the Interclub Bay cruise association continues this tradition with the dedication of a committee of volunteers representing a number of different affiliated yacht and boating clubs.

The Moreton Bay Boat Club forms part of this rich tapestry with high levels of participation and involvement from members over many years.

Other affiliated clubs include:-

  • Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron
  • Brisbane Outboard Aquatic and Touring Club
  • Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club
  • Wynnum Manly Yacht Club
  • Southport Yacht Club
  • Little Ship Club
  • Gold Coast Boat Club

Celebrating its 45th. Cruise in 2020, the Interclub Bay Cruise is the largest and longest running single event on Moreton Bay with more than eighty vessels regularly taking part in the week long cruise of Moreton Bay and the Broadwater.

Boats of all sizes, all vintages and all persuasions will take part in the next cruise.

The itinerary includes destinations between Manly Harbour in the north and the Southport Broadwater to the south, with activities and events held at each anchorage.

Power boats and sailing yachts are combines for what a truly unique and special event with fellowship is and safe boating being the key ingredient in all activities.

The Interclub Bay Cruise committee warmly welcomes all members of the Moreton Bay Boat Club to join us for the cruise and show your club colours with pride.

Please speak to your delegates for more information. MBBC delegate is Lindsay Linton.

The program for next year’s cruise is still being formulated and will be advised as it comes to hand.
