Ellis Beach Sailing

CYC Ellis Beach Sailing – The Best Sailing Location in Cairns

Ellis Beach provides an ideal venue for all sailing dinghies especially “Off the beach” catamarans such as the Nacra F18’s, the Nacra 4.5’s and the Hobie 16’s as well as all performance monohulls.

The sailing area between Double Island and the beach provides sea room for regatta courses that would be the envy of most sailing clubs around Australia.

Launching off the beach is well protected from the prevailing SE winds and the rigging area is mostly shaded. 

2024 Sailing Season dates are now available, with racing or club days mainly scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. Check out our racing calendar here.

By prior arrangements with the CYC office, boat storage is available for active club members’ boats - terms and conditions apply.
