TICKETS are selling and participants are registering in the 2017 Trinity Powersports Sea-Fari island hop.
The annual jetski-powered island hop is an aquatic adventure, perfectly timed to take place on Australia Day 2017.
This year’s event has drawn the attention of national motorsport commentator Greg Rust, who is donating his time to take part, as well as international film company JetskiTV.
Participants will have an aquatic adventure to remember forever while helping cancer patients and their families in Far North Queensland.
Considered one of the most spectacular jet-ski routes in the world, the event raises money for the Cancer Care Ward at Cairns Hospital via donations to the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation.
The funds raised are used to enrich the lives of people undergoing treatment for cancer in Far North Queensland.
Sea-Fari is in memory of Cairns Hospital cancer patient Brian “Unit” Wilson whose vision for an aquatic fundraising event has generated more than $130,000 since its inception in 2011.
Leaving from Yorkeys Knob, the event takes a coastal route to Double Island and Scout’s Hat Island off Palm Cove, then onto Wangetti Beach, Low Island and finally into Port Douglas for lunch.
The theme is "Be Iconic" and teams are encouraged to snap the most iconic group shots they can at each location then post them to Instagram or Facebook. The most "iconic" shots will go into the draw to win some great prizes.
Trinity Powersports Sea-Fari is a team event however individuals can still enter if they wish.
There are no restrictions on how many craft in a team however riders are restricted to the maximum number of seats available on the craft, usually 1-3.
Entrants are defined as riders and include the craft skipper and any pillion passengers. Entry fees are $80 per rider which includes lunch in Port Douglas. Entrants also must fundraise a minimum of $200 each to participate.
In order to raise the minimum required fundraising amount, teams are encouraged to work together in shifts to man the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation’s art union stand located in key Cairns shopping centres.
