NO PROBLEM is one of five yachts that race in Gladstone that will take part in Friday's Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht race, and yet the boat is all by its lonesome.

Unlike its four fellow yachts, No Problem is the only entry from the local area to be racing the multi-hull race.

Last year Ray Hobbs' catamaran was the performance handicap winner.

In a fleet of 16 yachts in the category, Hobbs will be keen to see his yacht pick up more silverware in the 50th edition of the multi-hull race.

Already preparing for the 308-nautical-mile challenge in Brisbane, No Problem will be ready come the 11am start on Good Friday.

The 11.6m Schionning Waterline 1160 is in good hands, with Hobbs winning a number of races on multiple vessels.

No Problem and the multi-hulls will race alongside 30 mono-hull yachts, with a total of 46 vessels making the journey north.
