Excitement is brewing as Cleveland Yacht Club gears up for the 53rd edition of its renowned Peel Island Marathon, slated for Sunday, April 21st, 2024. This flagship event promises thrilling competition amidst the picturesque waters encircling Peel Island (Teerk Roo Ra) in Moreton Bay.

Originating in 1969 as the Cleveland Catamaran Marathon, this race has evolved into the revered Peel Island Marathon. Welcoming diverse participants, including off-the-beach catamarans, monohulls, wind foilers, yachts, and sports boats, the race kicks off from Cleveland Point, typically spanning two laps around Peel Island.

The event draws competitors from across Queensland and northern New South Wales and serves as a litmus test for their prowess and endurance, often under demanding conditions.

As a not-for-profit club, Cleveland Yacht Club thrives on the dedication of its members, who generously volunteer both onshore and offshore on race day, ensuring the seamless and safe execution of the event. Those inclined towards helping on race day or in subsequent events are warmly encouraged to join the Club’s ranks of volunteers and members.
