Cruising to raise funds for Fraser Coast charities

DO your part for charity and enjoy a cruise through Hervey Bay waters this weekend to help raise money for groups such as the Rural Fire Brigades.

In the annual Cruise for Charity, 20 yachts will race from Urangan from 11am on Sunday.

The event starts with a pre-cruise party and auction at Hervey Bay Boat Club tomorrow night.

Party tickets are available from the Boat Club for $20 and include dinner.

On Sunday, people can ride on a whale-watch boat, to be part of the action in the Whale Watch Boat Challenge.

Passengers board at the Urangan Marina at 10am to return at 1pm.

Tickets, from Hervey Bay Boat Club, are $30 and include lunch.

All proceeds will go to Hervey Bay Sunrise Rotary to be donated to Fraser Coast charities.
