Ahoy crew! Get hyped because the weekend you’ve been waiting for is finally here!! No semester at UQ is truly complete without hitting up Moreton Island, so we’ve got one last adventure in the bag for you!
2020 has been one hell of a year, but there’s no way we could let it end without a UQSC tradition. So don your christmas hat and get ready to set sail towards good vibes.
We’re doing a fast paced, bare bones trip and you’re invited! We’re heading over on Saturday the 19th of December and coming back on Sunday the 20th. The majority of us are sailing over to Moreton island, unfortunately all the spots on the sail across are sold out. However, don’t worry, you don’t have to miss out. We will organise a spot on the ferry for you, there and back. Once everyone arrives we will set up camp and settle into the island vibes whilst cooking dinner. We’re only going to stay for one night, so come prepared for a crazy star lit beach party.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned sailor or have never sailed before, we’ve got you covered! We’ll provide the boats, skippers, equipment and good times, you just come along for the ride!
You will have to arrange your own transport to where the ferry departs Brisbane, the address is: 14 Howard Smith Dr, Port Of Brisbane QLD 4178 Australia. The ferry takes approximately 90 minutes to reach Moreton Island. When checking out be sure to choose your preferred ferry time. You may arrive there before the group that is sailing over, so if you can’t spot the boats on the beach feel free to explore the island. Due to the unpredictable whether we are not sure what time we will arrive.
A confirmation email with further details will be sent out closer to the weekend. Please be patient when waiting for confirmation as spaces can sometimes be limited and weather conditions have to be taken into consideration.
No experience is necessary we have experienced skippers who attend and are more than happy to show you the ropes.
Weather can rapidly change throughout the weekend, and the getaway may need to be cut short if we cannot safely sail.
We are taking all precautions to ensure our event is COVID Safe. We are in constant communication with UQ Sport and taking all recommendations from QLD Health. If you have travelled from interstate, experienced COVID symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has, please contact the exec and do not attend the event.
