Glenridding Sailing Centre → LAUNCHING + STORAGE


your boat at the Glenridding Sailing Centre from mid-March to end-October. The site is locked each night. In some spots boats can also be locked to trees for extra security.

Sail at any time
Safety boat cover is provided 10am to 5pm seven days/week. You can sail, at your own risk, any other time.

Free Parking and Facilities
There is free parking and you can use all the Centre facilities, including the beach, picnic areas, toilets, etc. The centre of Glenridding is only 500m from the Sailing Centre, so non-sailors are also well catered for.

Assisted Rigging and Launching
We have experienced staff (and other sailors) on hand to help you rig and tune your boat. You can store and launch any dinghy or traditional boat that can be launched from a trolley each day.

For those with larger boats we have a small tractor to assist with launching and recovery.

Motors
Sorry, no motorboats are permitted, but you may use a small auxilary motor if you wish.

Insurance
Please make sure you have adequate insurance, as you leave your boat at the Spit at your own risk.
