Cnr Griffith & Boardman Roads, Newport, Queensland
The prevailing wind in February is from the eastern half of the compass in a reliable sea breeze. In these conditions the western bank is used for ranking events, providing a windward leeward course with ample length.
The resident club sails three times a week usually from the southern bank and uses well less than half of the area available for the Nationals. All Controlled Areas are elevated, grassed and in good order. The pontoon is available although most sailors choose to launch from the nearest bank.
The area is tidal with generally clean water and no through tidal flow.
Online Entry, Notice of Race & Sailing Instructions will be available shortly.
