Hi Deborah


Welcome to Poms in Oz


I've never been to Brisbane so I can't tell you anything about sailing there. I know that there is a marina in Southport and apparently there are a couple of offshore islands within a day-sail. I imagine that either there will be buoys or that people anchor up overnight. The islands are lovely, I'm told.


Contact PommyPaul, I suggest. He was brought up on the Norfolk Broads, has only recently arrived in the area himself (he is in Caloundra but he has a car.) He's hoping to get out on the water again. He is also 31 and single, so if you are single as well I think it is a racing certainty that he would collect you from the airport if you ask nicely!




Meanwhile, here are some relevant links as well:


Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (might as well start at the top!)


Brisbane Eighteen Footers Sailing Club (Australia)

WMYC Welcome




As a "big boat" sailor, I can ASSURE you that all the racing owners fall on a dinghy sailor with cries of joy when they are looking for crew. The dinghy boys & girls are always the canniest.


E-mail all the clubs, ask questions and I am sure that all of them will give you phone numbers etc of people to contact when you have arrived.


Best wishes
