THE new South Grafton marina was used for the first time by the Clarence River Yacht Club on the weekend as four members launched their boats for a weekend cruise.
Club member Alex Purvis said the marina was excellent.
"The ramps worked easily, even for large boats, and the floating jetty there is a wonderful thing," he said.
The four boats sailed to Moleville Rocks, upstream of Grafton, and camped the night before making their way back on Sunday.
"It's a good position there, especially when you're going upstream, because our boats can't fit under the bridge," Mr Purvis said.
