Sailing

The Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club boasts a strong, varied and competitive sailing division.  The local conditions are highly suited to trailer sailor style designs and the senior competitive activities are heavily represented by this class of boats, especially our substantial fleet of very competitive Blazer 23 class yachts along with Hartley, Farr and RL24.

Our main club competitions occur every second Saturday afternoon from 1pm in a number of series running all year long. Members also compete annually in major Queensland premiere events  like the Bay to Bay, Surf to City, Pearl Challenge, Sail Mooloolaba and St Helena Cup, predominantly from September to May each year. There is also a winter series running every three or four weeks during the winter months.

WAGS (Wednesday afternoons go sailing) 

Saturday afternoon (fortnightly) 

The Noosa Yacht & Rowing Club have a committed group of Sailors who love to race on the above days. It’s social, but it can get competitive, racing to win! Watch from the open balcony or join us as a crew member on the water. We invite experienced and would-be yachties to join us sailing and enjoy a thrilling race along the Noosa River.

Saturday afternoons are when the Club’s main competitions occur in a windward-leeward pursuit format.

These social sailing days are great events for those who want to try sailing for the first time or for sailors wishing to develop their skills or to simply socialise. Visitors just need to arrive no later than 1 pm for their first visit to secure a place. Come down to see us any time to volunteer as a crew member, after the race finishes there are prizes to be won and celebrated over a refreshing beer or two! Please bring along a bottle of water, hat, sunscreen and clothes that can get wet!. During the colder months, a jacket is recommended.

Our Youthsail Program is a very special part of our club and we pride ourselves on the resources and expertise we are able to offer and in return our young sailors have very successfully represented the club at regional, state and international levels and have a proud record of achievement.

Please see the Youthsail section for more details.
