Keelboat sailing

As a rule, keelboat racing happens every Saturday in summer and on a few Sundays in winter.  The fleet includes Couta boats, small to medium keelboats and a couple of 40 foot ocean racing yachts.  Members’ vessels are moored either in pens within the Queenscliff marina or off the Queenscliff Cruising Yacht Club – on swing moorings or in pile moorings.  A good summer race could include up to 8 boats of various sizes plus our Committee boat “Swan”.  For race dates, see under “Calendars / Calendar of Events” as well as the downloadable Sailing Program.  And skippers who might wish to race please register your vessel (once to cover the whole year) as follows.
