The first club race for 2016 will be from Sandgate on Sunday 17 January. We launch at the public boat ramp in Sinbad Street Shorncliffe with the usual staggered start times from 10.40 am. We typically set a course to suit the wind in the area north of the shipping channel up to Woody Point. Let’s get lots of boats out on the water to kick off what is going to be a big year for the club.

If you have a trailer sailer but are not a member yet, you can still come along and sail with us to see if you like our semi-competitive social agenda. If you haven’t got a boat and would like to crew, come along and we will find a spot for you to enjoy a sail. If possible, use our Facebook page to tell us you are coming and ask any questions. You can also register on our boat and crew finder above.

As you know we had to cancel this great weekend event at the Sandhills early November due to weather conditions. Despite our busy program we luckily found a suitable weekend between the Presidents Cup and the Presentation night.

Probably the best weekend of the year will now take place on:

Saturday Dec. 5 and Sunday Dec 6.

Don’t miss it !

In the previous years we used to have a combined AGM and Presentation night. This year however we had the AGM in July and will have the Presentation Night on Saturday 12 December.

So now it will be a double party as we combine the excitement of the results of the past sailing season with that special feeling that only Santa can bring in the silly season.

Please come and join us to celebrate and find out how you did on the water.

The next club sailing event is the Presidents Cup race from Raby Bay on Sunday 29 November. This beautiful trophy was donated by past presidents of the club and is currently held by Sacha, last year’s winner.

The course will be decided at around 10 am as we launch at the Raby Bay ramp, but is usually either clockwise or anticlockwise around Peel Island, depending on the wind. There will be a staggered start at the cardinal near the leads, with the first boats going at 10.40 am.

Come along and try to have this trophy sit on your shelf for the next year.

November 7-8

This trophy honours a much loved former club member who enjoyed sailing to the Sandhills. This year’s event is on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 November, with the combined times for the two days deciding the winner of the trophy. The inaugural winner in 2012 was Evergreen. In 2013, the event was cancelled due to strong winds, and in 2014 we went south due to the weather and Miramare won the race back from Pink Panther.

The Saturday race is from Manly to the Big Sandhills on Moreton Island, with staggered start times commencing from 10.40 am at the Manly leads. Race briefing will be in the carpark near the public boat ramp just before 10 am. Any boats wishing to cruise over should consider starting before 10.30 am, but they can sail over in their own time. High tide is 2.00 m at about 6.30 pm so we can get right in to the beach, and high tide on Sunday morning is 2.02 m at about 7.20 am.

Sunday’s race back will start between 9.30 am and 10.00 am when all boats are ready, as long as there is sufficient wind at this time. There will be an informal briefing after breakfast. Cruisers can return at their leisure.

There are no facilities at the Sandhills, just a lovely beach and the giant sand dunes. Be prepared to use the toilet on your boat or to go bush with a small shovel. Some refreshments will be provided by the club, but you should bring some drinks and nibbles for the usual get together. Folding chairs are optional. You can cook and eat on your boat or on the beach. It is possible to camp behind the beach in a small tent if you wish.

Hope to see lots of boats out for this popular weekender to remember Susie. Keep an eye on the Facebook page in case the weather requires a rethink of the destination.

Depending on favourable weather, this year’s Labour Day long weekender will be a trip from Manly over to Tangalooma on Moreton Island. There is a race over on Saturday at the usual staggered start times from 10.40 am. Course details will be arranged at the boat ramp before the race. Cruisers can head off whenever they wish. High tide is at 1.20 pm, so we will be arriving on a falling tide. Just south of the wrecks at the north end of the beach is our usual anchorage. You may like to bring some swimming and snorkelling gear as this is a great spot.

There is a camping area with a cold shower and toilet behind the beach, and you can wander up to the resort for coffee or meals if you wish. There is no race back, so you can cruise back on Sunday or Monday at your leisure to suit the wind. Keep an eye on the Facebook page during the week in case the wind forecast necessitates a different destination. Hope to see lots of boats out if the weather is good.

Well, we didn’t make it last time, so we’ll try again to visit this great spot. There will be a race down from Manly on the Saturday, at the usual staggered start times. Anyone not wanting to race can cruise down and join us at Coochie-Mudlo Island. The return race will be on Sunday, with an earlier start time which will be decided to suit the wind.

We will overnight off the beach in front of the picnic shelter, which is on the south side of the island about 100 metres west of the barge ramp. Toilets, cold showers, and a café are a short walk away near the jetty. Bring a barbecue for dinner or buy fish and chips from the café.

Coochie provides excellent shelter from most wind directions, but if there is a brisk southerly, the alternative destination will be St Helena Island, so keep an eye on the Facebook page. St Helena has a picnic shelter and toilets near the jetty.
