Sailing on Moreton Bay
Moreton Bay is glorious and there are many ways to go boating on the Bay and see for yourself the wonders on our doorstep here. If you have your own boat - you are fortunate, but for those who do not there are many options. One in particular which is a great day out is on the sailing ship South Passage. The home port of the South Passage is Manly, which is the base of Sail Training Association of Queensland. The South Passage is available for day trips from time to time, so check the program here and book in. You will need to be at the William Gunn Jetty, Manly by 9.30 am, ready with comfortable clothes and shoes, sunscreen, hats, (togs if you want a swim), and a sense of adventure. Don't forget your food - as you must supply all your own refreshments for day trips. If you are interested in learning how to sail, or being involved in the organisation, or going on longer voyages, check out the website. Join the organisation and enjoy membership benefits. We went on one of the voyages on January 23rd 09 - and it was a great fun day out!
