Going from Strength to Strength

Welcome to the Abell Point Yacht Club Incorporated website.

The club continues to go from strength to strength. Membership is up around 300% over the last year, with a substantial portion of our memberships now being Couples which reflects our aim to be an all inclusive boating club with a focus on social activities on and off the water.

Add this site to your Favourites so you can follow developments, announcements of events and reports and photos of happenings at your club.

This website is the centre point for the Abell Point Yacht Club but you can also follow us on up via our social media:

Our website is still maturing, but it is rapidly developing as our primary contact for existing and prospective members and as the location for club material, documents and forms. Please use the web forms to join the club or to register for posted events and if you have any problems with these applications just contact us at and we will be happy to help out.

The Long and The Short

The Abel Point Yacht Club was formed in 1997 by a group of local sailors. The Club’s activities grew over the years to include Friday afternoon races, a number of day and offshore races and the iconic Dent to Dunk Race and Rally. After Cyclone Yasi badly damaged Dunk Island in 2011, this annual event was reborn as the Coral Coast Race and Rally from Airlie Beach to Magnetic Island. The Club for many years called the Sorrento Bar and Restaurant and the Abel Point Marina its home and still has a close relationship with Sorrento.

The Club was formally incorporated as the Abell Point Yacht Club (adopting the historically correct spelling of Abell) on 29 October 2015 and “Power and Sail” was added as our tag line. The Club’s program is designed to offer on and off water activities, with an emphasis on fellowship and social interaction to complement the historical sailing program.

Membership of the Abell Point Yacht Club is open to anyone who has an interest in boating.

So why not join us and enjoy the best that the Whitsundays has to offer…
