Welcome to the Townsville Sailing Club



Picnic Bay is on again this Sunday ! 
The one not to miss !  Boat or no boat !
Sabot and Bic sailors will need to go in Flying 11s or hitch a ride on a senior boat.  Adults without boats can hire Club Pacers.
Ask anyone who has been before and they will tell you how much fun the kids have and how the parents enjoy “supervising” the kids from licensed stools and benches nearby.
Even if you have not sailed in ages, bring your boat down for this one or members can hire a Club boat – but get in fast !
Leave The Strand beach at 10.30am.  Leaving Picnic Bay beach at 2.30pm.

 Greenfleets every Sunday

Junior and Senior Greenfleets from 09:00am to 12:00pm

 $25 for Pacers, $10 Sabots, $5 Plastic Opties (and own boat)
