The Club's venue is off the Gold Coast Highway at the Police station on 1st Avenue, Palm Beach (250 meters straight down to the park / lake / venue).
Alternatively, take exit 92 off the M1 motorway - from either direction.
Our sailing venue is not noted for easy sailing at times due to lakeside development and the trees having become a bit higher over the years.
It can be quite "tricky" when sailing here if the weather is not from the south, but that is all part of sailing we believe - a lot of sailing skills can be gained by sailing here.
If you are able to sail well here then you can become a very competitave sailor - able to do well at any regatta around the country\world.
The Club has ample parking, BBQ facilities, a large children's playground with toilets on location.
Snack and coffee shops are close by also (circa. 50 meters).
Launching is from a dedicated ramp and pontoon and caters to all class's of boats being IOM, 10R or RM, with ease.
The Club has a storage shed and electric driven rescue boat.
The Club sails throughout the year on Wednesdays and Saturdays from around 1000hrs (QLD Time) - with the only exception being Xmas and New Years day should they fall on our normal days.
Generally, we can get some 8+ races in each day, for each of the IOM and 10R fleets, these being the main class's we sail here.
Yes! even the RM's are also welcome !
Scratch or handicap racing is determined on the day.
Wits, common courtesy towards others and a sense of humour at all times are what makes the grade here.
