Winter is the ideal time to sail in Brisbane. Typically we have more moderate winds, smoother seas and the sun has half the bite. All we have to do is make sure we don’t capsize.
This winter, HYC is offering sailing every second Sunday. From 21st May through until the start of the 17/18 season we will man up the safety boats and lay the courses that the people who book in ask for. The dates will fit around the Second Annual WinterBash that is being held over the weekend 29-30th July.

We will posted the decision as to whether or not we sail on Facebook and the Web page on the Thursday morning.
