Docklands Yacht Club overlooks Victoria Harbour with sweeping views of the Melbourne City skyline and the ever changing Docklands precinct. From January 2016, sailing will take place from the 60 metre pontoon at our new premises - the Community Boating Hub, 912 Collins Street, adacent to the Library at Dock Square. Community Sailing days are normally the second and fourth Sunday of each month year round from 11am but are subject to change (check Calendar page for more details). Everyone is welcome. We supply the boats, lifejackets and instruction.
Victoria Harbour School Sailing Series in March
The Victoria Harbour School Sailing Series will be held on Thursday and Friday March 18 & 19 and is expected to attract up to 18 Victorian Secondary Schools.
Conducted by Yachting Victoria and hosted by the Docklands Yacht Club, this Team Racing competition will comprise a round-robin series followed by finals to determine to top ranked Victorian school. The winner will be invited to represent their State at the Australian Schools Team Racing Championships later in the year.
Victoria Harbour is an ideal venue for Team Racing, offering a protected waterway with easy viewing by spectators from the shore. Races are about 10 minutes duration and the close tactical racing makes for great watching.
