Off-Beach Racing

The Whitsunday Sailing Club has one of the best protected sailing areas on the Queensland coast, with easy access from the rigging and storage facilities to the club’s dinghy harbour and launching area. Our perfect sailing conditions allow us a long season, which starts 1 March 2020 and ends 29 November 2020.

Given that WSC is situated on some of the world’s best sailing waters, with flat waters and predominantly off shore South Easterly breeze, the club provides a challenging, but safe environment for both learn to sail and experienced sailors.

Sunday Racing

Racing is held on Sundays at 1:00 pm and is for all Junior and Senior Classes. Refer to our Off-Beach Sailing Guide  and Off -Beach Racing Calendar for details.

Get into Racing

For those wanting to start sailing, we will be running Learn to Sail programs during the year. These include Start Sailing 1 & 2 and Better Sailing courses. Each course will run for 8 weeks during school terms, and at the end of the three courses, sailors will be ready to start racing.

Our start sailing program caters to ages 9 and up.
