Terry O'Donnell recently transferred from the very successful Albert Sailing Club (ASC), to the emerging Docklands Yacht Club.


Terry brings a wealth of club administration experience with a track record of great achievements over the last five years, including Yachting Victoria's Media Award 2005 and Club of the Year Award 2006.  After four consecutive terms as ASC Vice-Commodore, a new challenge was found with the bright young team at Docklands Yacht Club.


"This young Club has enthusiasm, the correct attitude towards providing a service for the community, a brilliant location and a spectacular sailing arena. I believe the most amazing opportunity I've ever come across is here at Docklands Yacht Club", said Terry.


 A new Membership and Volunteer recruitment campaign will commence in September 2008.  Docklands residents and visitors from around Melbourne and Victoria are welcome to try sailing from the DYC facilities at Shed 2, North Wharf Rd, Docklands. They have large bright yellow and blue sail shades out front so are easy to spot.


Activities for the community are conducted every 2nd and 4th Sunday from 11am-3.30pm. Dinghy sailing on the magnificent Victoria Harbour is a must do experience for people of all abilities.  For more info contact Terry on 0425 737389, email or visit

Our new location
