The Yachting Australia Training Centre at Docklands Yacht Club has been using Access dinghies for introductory sail training with much success. The recent purchase of two Ozi Optis now allows Junior sail training to be rounded out with capsize recovery and paddling and allows sail training participants to sail in both types of dinghy.

 

In January, some of our Junior club members spent a sunny Sunday afternoon testing the stability of the optis.

Our new location

Sailing for Everyone!

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.
