Where to sail a Flying Fifteen in Queensland

Sandgate Yacht Club
Established in 1912 and is located at 95 Allpass Parade, Shorncliffe, approximately 15 minutes drive north of Brisbane domestic and international Airport.  Sailing is conducted on Bramble Bay which is part of northern Moreton Bay and a short sail out from the club’s grounds near the mouth of Cabbage Tree Creek.  The sailing area is completely free of moored craft and other boat traffic and courses can be freely set in any wind direction.  During an afternoon seabreeze near perfect sailing conditions produce magic spinnaker rides surfing the well developed swells.  Club facilities include: clubhouse and bar overlooking Moreton Bay, modern shower facilities, private launching ramp with adjoining pontoon, grassed rigging area and fenced hardstand area.Sailing every Sunday fortnightly throughout the year, check website for dates.Website: ……..SYC.org.au and Facebook.com/Sandgate Yacht Club/
Tin Can Bay Yacht Club
Established in 1981 and is located at Norman Point, at the mouth of Snapper Creek on the southern end of the Great Sandy Strait between Fraser Island and the mainland.  Sailing is conducted on the calm waters of TCB Inlet fringed by the Cooloola and Great Sandy National Parks.  The agility and shallow draft of the Flying Fifteen makes it the perfect boat to race in the tidal waters with its myriad of sandy shoals.  Club facilities include: clubhouse with bar, cafe, change and shower facilities and a large covered outdoor area to shoot the breeze; dinghy launching ramps, secure hardstand area, on-site camping. Launching is carried out at the adjoining four-lane public ramp with central floating dock.  Racing often starts opposite the clubhouse or a short sail to the Inlet.Sailing every Sunday fortnightly throughout the year, check website for dates.Website:……… tcbyachtclub.wixsite.com/tcbyacht-club; and Facebook.com/TCBYachtClub/
Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS)
The Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron is Queensland’s oldest sailing club and the birthplace of Flying Fifteen’s in Queensland.  The club is on the southern end of Manly Harbour about 30 minutes drive across Brisbane River from the domestic and international airport.  Racing occurs on adjacent Waterloo Bay a short sail out from the harbour mouth.  The venue has extensive facilities and personnel capable of running any competition from weekend club racing to National and International regattas including the Olympics.  The Flying Fifteen Worlds were held from this venue in 1990.  Accommodation options include on-site camping, motel and dormitory style, as well as many options at nearby Manly village.Website: ……..www.RQYS.com.au and Facebook.com/RQYS.Manly
