Ellis Beach Location

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 Hobbie 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. By prior arrangements with the  CYC office email: cyc@cairns.net.au , boat storage is available.
Club Racing
The Club is holding races mostly on the second Sunday of each month with both morning and afternoon races. (See calendar attachment). Racing is open to all experienced sailors.
Working with FNQ Clubs
Our close links with the Port Douglas Sailing Club continue and we also support their sailing day which is the fourth Sunday of the month so hopefully an increasing number of sailing craft should be seen at both the locations. Families and visitors are welcome to take advantage of the wonderful views and watch the on the water activities from the comfort of the shaded verandah.
Thus Ellis Beach is the perfect place for any member to enjoy our top facility.
