Redcliffe - Scotts Point (Moreton Bay)
Scotts Point, Margate; corner of King Street and Margate Parade. There is suitable grass rigging areas on either side of the Bathing Pavilian and in sporadic areas all along the front of the beach (along Margate Parade). Racing is usually conducted straight infront of the grass area (wind direction pending).

Scotts Point is just around the corner from Woody Point and is a major windsurfing location in South-East Queensland. Suitable to sail in everything from S to N winds, Redcliffe provides one of the few locations near Brisbane that is not particularly effected by tide. Even at low tide, fin depth water can be found in only a few metres walk into the sea (even for formula fins!). Scotts Point can receive a decent size chop in windy conditions making it a popular spot for bump&jump and freestyle sailors.

Location:
Head across the Hornibrook Bridge then follow the Esplanade around either turning left into Victoria Street or following the Esplanade until it turns into Oxley Avenue. Turn right into King Street - which is one of the first few streets on the right (well sign-posted). Follow King Street down to the water and vear left to find a carpark.
- Approximately 35 mins from Central Brisbane.
