Become a sponsor

Reach your customers by sponsoring the Interclub Bay Cruise in 2018!

This year the Interclub Bay Cruise celebrates its 42nd cruise and remains the most popular cruising event held on Moreton Bay. The first cruise began in 1976 with a handful of boats and, many years later, now attracts up 80 vessels and 250 participants each year. The family-friendly event promotes safe boating and friendship on the water and continues uninterrupted for seven days from 22nd to 29th September. In 2018 the cruise will be commencing in Manly Boat Harbour with destinations in Moreton Bay and the Broadwater.

The Cruise is supported by boating clubs and marine rescue associations around Moreton Bay and the Gold Coast offering families an affordable week of fun, activities and marine education for all ages. The opportunity for sponsors is to advertise, promote and showcase their businesses to a captive audience of boating enthusiasts and families.

Sponsorship benefits

• You will partner with a community-orientated association with 40 years’ experience
• Identification and acknowledgement of your company name and logo at each event
• Capture a direct audience for the entire week
• Your organisation will partner in providing marine and environmental education;
• You will be helping your community.

Every evening cruise participants gather on shore, to dine and participate in social events.  A series of “Lucky Draws” take place where prizes, donated by sponsors, are distributed to those cruisers present.  The purpose of these “Lucky Draws” is to encourage people to join in the fun times of social camaraderie and in turn, creates a captive audience for your products and services.

We are also inviting a limited number of businesses to showcase their products and services through their sponsorship of the cruise. Sharing your knowledge and expertise with boating enthusiasts can be a real point of difference and build strong relationships with your business and your customers.

 The Cruise Magazine is issued at the start of the Cruise and the daily newspaper named the “Cruz Nooz” is also distributed each morning. We also compile a booklet of all Sponsors to be given to each participant and sponsor.  Sponsorship also includes a link from our website to yours.
