Capricorn Coast beaches are some of the best for sand sailing. Far out low tides provide plenty of space for trailing nonstop kilometres of sand.

Notes for newcomers to our sport
- You are welcome to come and have a look. But remember we need wind to move. If it’s not blowing the chances are that our sailors are still on their back verandahs drinking beer. Phone beforehand to check, if the wind is a bit iffy.
- We have a couple of club karts which will be available for newcomers to give it a go. But if you want to race you’ll have to join up which you can do on the day.
