Just a reminder this Sunday the 29/4/18 is the monthly Ellis Beach Race Day for all off the beach boats. Attached is the info flyer, sailing instructions and price guide for race and boat hire. We would love to see as many as possible of you out there. It doesn’t matter if you are racing or not. Bring your family and let the kids run around in the sand and have a picnic under the shade of the paperbark trees. Food and drinks can also be purchased at the clubhouse.

 

Please we also need volunteers to help release and catch boats for each race, so if you don’t have much on come on down and enjoy such a great spot that we are fortunate to have.
