South Passage

Adventure Under Sail


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sail Training Association of Qld Inc. Board of Management have made the difficult decision to suspend the sailing operations of South Passage from Friday 20th March 2020 through to Tuesday 30th June 2020.

We will continue to operate our office function as some employees will be working from home during this period.
