VENUE

Jervoise Bay Sailing Club is situated on Woodman Point National Park, south of Fremantle in Western Australia. The Club sits on the north facing beach which wraps around to form a pristine bay, protected inshore from the sea breezes and swell. In summer, the water temperature averages 22 degrees with an average air temp of 28. Perth is known for its dry, warm sunny days and afternoon sea breeze. In summer the wind blows offshore in the morning, and the iconic Fremantle Doctor comes in the early afternoon to cool the locals and provide a fantastic sailing experience.

This is one of the best venues in the world for beach cats, and Hobies will be at home in the waters off Jervoise Bay Sailing Club. The Club is blessed with a large grassed area. For activities ashore, native trees line the southern side providing shade and protection from the southerly winds. Launching is a breeze, off the beach in the protected flat waters and into a vast open space of the Indian Ocean perfect for sailing and the Hobie's will have it all to themselves. To the West, Garden Island, Carnac Island and Rottnest Island keep out the full ocean swell, but the area is large enough to develop a nice little wave for downwind sailing.

If you need anything, it is not far away. Only 5 minutes by car to South Fremantle where you have supermarkets, restaurants, hardware stores, marine chandlers and plenty more. There are two large caravan parks very close to the sailing club, short stay houses and hotels in Fremantle and surrounds. Camping will be available for tent goers on-site at the club. 

For spectators, both Jervoise Bay Sailing Club and the local Coogee Surf Life Saving Club, just a short walk north along the beach, will have excellent viewing. The port city of Fremantle is a popular tourist location and is only a 10-minute drive away. From there, a 20-minute ferry ride to Rottnest Island is a great day out, be sure to get your Quokka selfie! Fremantle itself has plenty to see with weekend markets, fishing harbour, plenty of shops, quality restaurants, famous cafe culture and lots of history. Visit the WA Maritime Museum to see Australia II and a classic Sandman Panelvan on display.
The city of Perth is only 30 minutes away by car or a train ride from Fremantle. Visit the famous Cottesloe Beach on the way, take a dip in the Indian Ocean and enjoy a Sunday session at the local beachside pubs. 

Got more time? Take a drive down south for some of the best food and wine in the country or go north to where the desert meets the sea. For the more adventurous enjoy some windsurfing, kitesurfing or surfing at some of the best locations around! There is plenty to do in WA. Just ask the locals, we know where to go and are very happy to share our fabulous state with you. 

Come and watch the sunset over the ocean with us. Western Australia will not disappoint you.
