Excellent fishing, swimming, windsurfing, and crabbing are a few of the highlights of a stop-off here. A safe haven when the Gulf is heaving. No shore power.

    • Rules for Alexandra Island (as per 2016 yearbook)

      The General Rules for Offshore Stations apply with the following specific to station additions:

      1. Members shall not exceed five knots within Centre Bay and must always attempt to minimise their wake. This rule does not apply to tenders, or sailboats involved in authorised Club races. 

      2. Please leave the premises in a clean and orderly fashion. Alexandra Island does not have a permanent Station Manager.

      3. Report any damage, misuse, or potential problems to the Mayor or the Rear Commodore Offshore Stations as soon as possible.

      4. Members who use the designated barbecue area must have a full bucket of water available at all times and ensure that embers are completely extinguished before leaving. Extra care must be used to avoid sparks as the island can be very dry.
