To mark such a special occasion , the Cleveland Yacht Club has designed a racing shirt made of high tech honeycomb material that is now available for purchase. This lightweight, cool, quick-drying, stretchy shirt is 100% Australian made (materials, design, manufacture) by Ventou and is very affordable in both short ($45) and long ($50) sleeves.

Place your order by emailing: cyc@outlook.com.au and include: Your name, Womens/Mens, Sleeve Length (Long, Short), Size (XXS through to 3XL) and quantity.

After discussions with Ventou we have managed to get a short extension. We now need your order by the 27th March. No further extensions are possible, so be part of Queensland sailing history and get your order in quick!"

SOCIAL SAILING

Do you have a old sailing boat at home which you have not sailed for years why not get it out and come down to Cleveland Point and sail with us socially on a Sunday from 9am?
Would you like to know more about social sailing then join us on a Sunday at any time throughout the day and let us show you what is available and how you may benefit from participation.
What do we offer? Access direct to the beautiful waters of Moreton Bay with supervision from both land and sea to ensure that in the event of a gear or crew failure ( we all know skippers never err) a rescue boat and qualified crew will be with you in seconds to ensure your safety and provide assistance should you require help in righting your craft, making temporary repairs, attending to any minor injuries or providing a tow back to the Club.
At all times you will be monitored from our Club and on the water by a Rescue boat manned by qualified crew ready and capable of providing assistance at no cost. The rescue boats are equipped with radios and therefore capable of being directed to any emerging situation from either shore or a another rescue boat, who may be further afield from the issue.
Club members have vast experience with all types of craft and are only too pleased to assist with rigging and/or provision of advice on all aspects of sailing or what areas are best to sail given wind and tide conditions on the day.
There is no need or pressure to join our races we are fostering this initiative to enable anyone to find out more about sailing and the joys of a day on the water without the stress or competitive urge to participate in and win races.
The club has a number of Pacers which are used for sail training and may provide you with the opportunity to enjoy time on the water under sail.
Alternatively you may wish to acquire skills in the management of sailing events for example assisting qualified crew on a rescue boat, setting courses or monitoring members sailing from the shore.
All you need to do is bring the family down to the club any Sunday and enjoy all of the above.
