QUEENSLAND CRUISING YACHT CLUB (QCYC)
The creek has a minimum depth of 2m LAT.
Berthing will be allocated on arrival at the marina. The Club undertakes to provide a berth for all competitors in so far as is possible however skippers are required to assist in this regard by asking the Race Office or Marina Marshalls (if present) for berth allocations prior to leaving the boat and by ensuring space is not wasted due to selfishness or inconsiderate berthing; large multihulls in particular MUST obtain a berth allocation prior to leaving the boat.
The ends of the T-Heads are reserved for offshore fleet monohulls where there is approximately 3m LAT.
Berthing at QCYC is by arrangement if you wish to leave your yacht at QCYC until the following weekend please make these arrangements early so as not to be disappointed.
Launching and recovery – trailerables at QCYC
The Club ramp and adjacent upstream Public ramp will be available for recovery. All yachts with trailers must be removed from the water at the first opportunity.
Non-members parking for vehicles and trailers is available in the overflow parking area on the other side of the road from the club.
