The fifth annual Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race is done and dusted for another year. The crews have ventured off to their next port which is either home or onto Airlie Beach or Hamilton Island for race weeks.

A highlight of this year's race was with Wild Oats XI setting a new race record of 24 hours, 20 minutes and 22 seconds.

Peter Millard and John Honan's super maxi Lahana was the overall winner taking out both IRC Overall and IRC Division 1.

'A huge thank you to everyone for making us welcome into this race and looking after us so well. It's a lot of work getting 22 guys off a boat, out of the bar and onto a bus to the airport but the team at Keppel Bay Marina managed to just make it happen,' said Millard.
