Welcome to the Townsville Sailing Club

What's on this weekend

This Sunday 5th July at 10am is Cleveland Bay race and the Senior Mono fleet is up for volunteer duty in the canteen and on the safety boats.

Want a close up view of sailing?  Safety boat duty is the way to go!  We promise you that you will be with someone experienced.  We promise you that you will see the fleet up close with great photo opportunities and you can even bring a fishing line if you wish!

If the water makes you a bit squeamish stay on shore and help out for the morning or afternoon at the canteen.  A great way to meet people in the club and have a coffee and cake!

Email aus2281@gmail.com
to let us know!  Please don’t leave it to Sunday to volunteer.  That just leaves us stressing all Friday and Saturday!  Let us know now.  You will enjoy it!


Change start times  for Winter!

Important news!

This Sunday we begin at 10am, but following that all our 2:00pm starts for July/August will be bought forward to 1:30pm.  With the earlier sunsets we have decided to try 1:30pm. We still want to give time for the morning activities but we also don’t want to be de-rigging in the dark!
So …. This Sunday 5th July will be 10:am start but all July and August starts that are currently listed for 2:00pm will be 1:30pm  Spread the word around your fleet!
