Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron
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.
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.
