Pennant Sailing

Welcome to Moreton Bay Boat Club Sailing page.

Welcome to the Moreton Bay Boat Club Sailing Section (MBBCSS) which sails from the Scarborough Boat Harbour at the northern end of the Redcliffe Peninsula. The MBBCSS comprises a number of sub-sections catering for junior sailing, Challenge sailing (for persons with disabilities), adult ‘learn to sail’ sessions, cruising in company, social aquatic events and pennant racing under the International Sailing Federation Racing Rules of Sailing as augmented by the Yachting Australia special provisions. Both racing and cruising activities are offered by the MBBCSS and new participants are most welcome.

The MBBCSS Handbook 2016 is primarily a reference document for MBBCSS members participating in bay and ocean aquatic events generally and pennant racing specifically.

About us

Welcome to the Sailing Section of Moreton Bay Boat Club, we are a diverse group of members with interests in a wide range of boats and sailing from RL24 enthusiasts to Sydney Hobart and inter country capable racers. Our vision is to encourage all sailing enthusiasts (and those that want to know more about the sport) to participate with us in yacht racing in a friendly and outward looking club.

To illustrate our commitment to our vision the Moreton Bay Boat Club – Sailing Section mission statement is“Actively promoting friendly competitive club and interclub RRS sailing in Moreton Bay and beyond. Encouraging business involvement and all new entrants to the sport”.

Our fleet is growing rapidly and is testament to our high standards of conduct and friendly club spirit.

Facilities are located on Moreton Bay Boat Club premises at Scarborough in Redcliffe, Brisbane and provide easy access to our warm sailing waters year round; either inside the sheltered waters of Moreton Bay to Gold Coast or beyond to the Great Barrier Reef. Enabling new entrants to the sport we have a learn to sail programme for adults and children and a wide range of sailors across all age groups who are willing to buddy up with new members to help them find their way round and meet other club members and share their skills.

Our section also has members who are committed to running the races. We have a full sailing race program supported by these enthusiastic and experienced members from a diverse background of yacht racing. MBBC Sailing provides assistance to members wishing to become involved in the organisation of these races including RRS rules workshops, safety training and access to nationally recognised certificates in yacht racing management.

To promote fairness and standardisation of our racing both within the club and nationally our section uses the latest premier yacht race handicapping and race management software tools available. The recent substantial purchase and ongoing support of this feature is made possible by kind donation from within our membership.
