KBSC Welcomes You

Keppel Bay Sailing Club is honoured to be hosting the 75th Australian Sharpie championships on the wonderful waters of Keppel Bay in the town of Yeppoon. Keppel Bay Sailing Club has a rich history with the Sharpie class, previously hosting the Australian titles in 1982 and again in 1994.

As a sailing club we are proud to be able to host events of this magnitude and our past history has proven this. We have successfully conducted 2 previous Australian sharpie championships, the 1999/00, and 2005/06 National Sabot Championships, the 2007 F18 World championships the 2008/09 Hobie Nationals, the 2011/12 National Cherub Championships, 2014/15 International Moth Australian championships and successfully run the Queensland youth camp and championships over the past 10 years just to name a few.

The Keppel Bay Sailing Club Offers a sailing location in relatively sheltered waters, as the area is protected by the picturesque Keppel Islands. The racing area is unlimited, within a short sail from the beach and in full view of the Clubhouse.

Because the Keppel Bay Sailing Club is located on the Yeppoon Main Beach, the Club has access to ample beach for launching and retrieving 100+ boats, simultaneously. Beach access is provided via the Club’s two-lane concrete beach access traffic ramp, while boats are rigged and de-rigged on either the concrete, grassed or bitumen rigging areas.

The Great Keppel Islands are a short 40 minute ferry ride across from the Keppel Bay Marina which is a 10 minute drive from the Keppel Bay Sailing Club. The Great Keppel Islands are one of our region’s main tourist destinations surrounded by the beautiful Great Barrier Reef and calm crystal blue waters. A short Drive north will see you meet luscious rainforest in Byfield with plenty of swimming and camping options around the rainforest in national parks.

There is plenty to see and do in Yeppoon and we have some of the best waters to sail and race on in the world.  Keppel Bay Sailing Club  welcomes the Sharpies back and look forward to seeing you  in December 2017.
