If only Saturday sailing could be this relaxed…
Come down for a sail, stay for a drink, sit down for a meal. Twilight sailing on Wednesday evenings is the only way to end 'hump day'.
Twilight sailing starts around November when the daylight hours start to get a little longer and continues right through until around April.
Sailing starts between 5.30pm - 6.00pm with the sound of a horn from the club start tower (see Season Programme for exact times), generally crews head out to the boats at least 30 mins prior.
Experience is not required however you do need to be able to move around freely. Koombana Bay Sailing Club also hosts Rotary Sail Into Life, they provide opportunities for people with disabilities, regardless of their ability, mobility or circumstances to try sailing. For more information see our RSIL page.
For those who are keen to get involved and try twilight sailing, come down to the clubhouse and hitch a ride on one of the many boats who are sailing (there is a $10 fee). You can contact the registration staff at the clubhouse from around 5.00pm to see who is in need of a crew.
You can also download the mobile app SailConnect, select which event you would like to attend and register your interest. This will let boat owners know who is looking for a position, they can then invite you on their boat or invite you for other events.
New members and their guests are always welcome.
(This is a very popular event so places are limited and a crew position on a boat cannot be guaranteed)
