December 1907, discussion between the former Melville Yacht Club (MYC) currently known as East Fremantle Yacht Club, Fremantle Sailing Club (FSC) and the Rockingham Progress Association resulted in two separate races, the Rockingham Easter Race with a 10 guinea prize pool and the birth of this fantastic event now know as the P&O Fremantle Harbour Classic.
