Races on Saturday and Sunday will be the 11th consecutive year the event has been held on the Fraser Coast.

The series has been growing in recent years, especially with the introduction of the new Super Class boats, which will see competitors from Melbourne, Mallacoota, Sydney and Townsville, to name a few, visit the whale watching capital of the world.

Bay City Marine and the Cleaver family will be looking to defend their wins in the 2021 instalment of the Sports 85mph class.

“Our reputation as a centre for events, whether it is cycling, sailing or powerboat racing, is steadily growing,” Cr Everard said.
