The Melton Gold Cup, hosted by the Melbourne Runabout and Speedboat Club, will be taking place on the weekend of 3-4 February 2018.
The Melton Gold Cup has been held at the Melton Reservoir for many years and brings together competitors from across Australia for two days of high paced speedboat racing action, with top speeds exceeding 220 kilometres per hour. The Melton Gold Cup 2018 incorporates eight classes of racing with approximately 80 boats participating.
This year, the club will be supporting Beyond Blue through a gold coin donation entry. With these donations, the club aims to encourage a broader audience to experience the event while raising money for their charity partners.
