MBBC Sailing 1

MBBC Sailing Team competes in the Schools Sailing interschool competition conducted by Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS). Competition is conducted on Sundays in Terms 1 and 4 in both Teams and Fleet racing.

Training is available to students in Years 7 to 12 in Term 1 and to students in Years 6 to 12 in Term 4. To be eligible to participate in the MBBC sailing program students must have completed the Start Sailing 1 & 2 course (or a comparable course) and have their own PFD.

Training sessions take place at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQ), Manly. Transport to training sessions is organised by MBBC, however, parents are required to collect their son promptly at the completion of the session at 6:00pm.

A fee of $250 per term is payable for participation in the MBBC sailing program. This covers coach fees, entry fees, storage and maintenance for our fleet of paces (18 across our combined sailing program with MBC) and fuel and maintenance for our coach boat.
