FACILITIES

We do not yet have a club house (Discussions have been ongoing with Crown lands since before 2017). The container is for boat and equipment storage.
Juniors are not permitted to enter the container unless putting boats and equipment away.

There are public toilets and an outdoor shower close by.

Refreshments – the club has soft drinks , limited snacks and sometimes bbq hot dogs/veggie burgers for sale (if someone volunteers to organise). The Sheoak Shack cafe is opposite the boat ramp car park and there is another shop/cafe a short distance further down Fingal Rd.

Calendar & Parent’s consent form can be found on our website.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS to Junior Sailors

· Juniors sailing on Sabots or X3s must not leave the beach before the safety boat is at the harbour entrance.
· Capsizing may be fun but can and has caused damage to the boats you use. Many of our boats are loaned to us by club members,
· Please respect the boats and equipment we are lucky enough to have available. Carry boats – never drag them.
