Sailing Matters

Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the B2G Yacht Race

-

Sharing the stories of the inaugural Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race of 1949, we celebrate 75 years of welcoming the competitors over the finish line.

This social history exhibition showcases a selection of historical images and memorabilia from the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum collection and features items from Douglas Drouyn’s yacht “Sea Tang”, which sailed in the 1947 Sydney to Hobart Ocean Cruising Race. Douglas was one of the founding members of the Queensland Cruising Yacht Club and the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race. Douglas’ son, Denis Drouyn donated family collection items to Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum in 2019.
