How do I get to go sailing ?
Wednesday afternoon is the best day to start your sailing experience with Mooloolaba Yacht Club. Come on down to The Wharf Tavern at 12pm and sign on with the crew. Bring shoes, hat, sunscreen on water. We are out for the afternoon and return to the Tavern for the race prizegiving where there is usually lots of chatter, tall stories and laughter alongside a few cool ales.
If you can’t make Wednesday, check the club calendar to see what event is on a Sunday. If its a Sunday Afternoon race, then sign on at The Wharf at 11am.
To check if the fleet are sailing any day, call the club on 0413 227 013 !
We charge $10 per person to go for a sail. This is a temporary membership payment. If you choose to join the club as you intend racing regularly, then the $10 you paid (maximum of 3 sails) for the casual sail will be credited against the cost of your annual membership.
If you are still not sure, maybe you want to do some sailing lessons to start. There are two great sailing schools on the coast – Sunshine Coast Sailing at Mooloolaba and Academy of Sailing at Maroochydore.
