Tides & Navigation & Entry to Brisbane Waters

Tides and Navigation —  Low tide is 1530 hours on 2nd October 2020

By car: it is an easy drive up the expressway and exit the Gosford turnoff. The Gosford Sailing Club offers good parking with excellent facilities.

By train: even better, the fast train leaves Central Station every 1/2 hour or so to Gosford Station. The Club is a very short ride away from the station.

Sailing: every year we are delivering boats to Gosford, so let us know if you are keen as every student is welcome!
