Power Boat Predicted Log & Navigation

Southport Yacht Club hold a wide variety of Predicted Log and Navigational Events.


If your boat is 5 metres or 25 metres or can only do 5 knots or 25 knots, it doesn’t matter you can take part in our Navigation Rallies

These events are fun and will test your boat control and navigation skills. These events previously known as a Log or Predicted Log Event has been run by SYC since 1959. They have evolved over the years, we now allow the use of GPS in the events and each boat’s progress is recorded electronically by the Tack Tracker system.

Each SYC Nav. Rally is about 2 hours on the water followed by a barbecue, refreshments, a presentation and a few tall tales. Our season runs from October to June with an 8 event club championship and the Goodwill Cup over two days against RQYS on Moreton Bay.

There are valuable prizes for outright and handicap places so everyone has a chance at a prize, but mostly it’s about having fun on your boat and enjoying the camaraderie of fellow members,  so let’s get out on the water, don’t leave your boat on the trailer or tied to the jetty.

We will provide you with full assistance to get you started, we will also provide you with a computer program and show you how to use it to prepare your run sheet etc. Everything to get you started is provided, so what are you waiting for, lets’s get out on the water and have fun in the SYC Navigation Rallies.
