It's a serious business having fun ! - Sunferries Magnetic Island Race Week 2008
John Clinton
Last year's regatta proved a huge success. It was a hard fought contest and the IRC division winner was not decided until the last Round the Bay Race. This year there will more serious players and some well known party animals. The Wolverines will add their special brand of fun to the whole event.

Regatta Director Denis Thompson is looking forward to the 2008 series. 'This venue has enormous potential; the local sailing community has worked hard to make it a success. The facilities are excellent, marina water depths are better than we expected with quite deep drafted yachts able to use the outer harbour and the water provide great sailing.'
