Imagine having your own island retreat where you could go to unwind, watch spectacular sunsets, go cycling, enjoy use of your own swimming pool and end the day with a barbecue and a refreshing drink.

It sound’s idyllic, doesn’t it? But it’s not a dream for RQYS members, it’s a reality. RQYS Canaipa is the jewel in the RQYS crown. It is the Squadron’s ‘down-the-bay’ property on the north east tip of Russell Island. This exclusive haven is part of the club’s sporting facilities and is available for use by all full members (not social members).

The premises covers some 1.1 hectares, and includes shower, toilet and laundry facilities, swimming pool, covered barbecues, picnic areas and extensive lawn areas, making it particularly attractive to members with smaller vessels with more limited accommodation. A full-time caretaker resides on-site and ensures everything is just right for members’ visits.

An all-weather anchorage is available for boats in the near vicinity and mooring available for tenders at the pontoon. RQYS Canaipa is a private facility with no public access permitted. For more information please call the caretaker on 0457 778 097.
