Why sail at Jervis Bay?
Jervis Bay is recognised as one of the best sailing venues in Australia. The waters are a pristine Marine Park. There are virtually no navigation hazards and boat traffic is light. The oval shaped bay is 15 km (7 nautical miles) long and 8 km (4 nautical miles) wide. Depth ranges from 10-20 m over most of the bay. The enclosed bay is partially sheltered, but southerly swells enter the bay and wind driven waves increase the excitement when racing. The winds are generally steady and persistent throughout the year, with 15-20 knot NE winds a feature during summer. Winds are generally around 10-15 knots on most days, less during Spring and Autumn. See a Map of Jervis Bay as PDF
