MARLAY POINT OVERNIGHT RACE

The  Marlay Point Overnight Race has been running on the Gippsland Lakes  since 1969. It is the only overnight race for trailer sailors in  Australia and has earned the reputation as the Sydney-Hobart for smaller  yachts.

Previously  hosted by the Lake Wellington Yacht Club (LWYC), this iconic race that  runs on the Victorian Labour Day in March every year is now hosted by  Gippsland Lakes Yacht Club (GLYC) under the guidance of LWYC. Starting  at sunset, competitors sail across Lake Wellington, through the McLennan  Straits into Lake Victoria for the run home to Paynesville.

Regarded  as Australia’s premier race for trailable yachts and multi-hulls, about  4000 boats and 11,000 sailors have been involved over the past 50  years, making the Overnight Race a must-do on every trailer sailors  bucket list.

In 2018, the CH Robinson Marlay Point Overnight Race celebrated its 50th anniversary.  An achievement of which the small club (LWYC) is very proud. More  than 200 yachts, and 600 crews, families and supporters from all over  Australia, plus hundreds of spectators, converged on Marlay Point, 22km  from Sale on Lake Wellington, for another spectacular sunset start.
