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.
Perfect weather for December Girls' program
The December Girls' Holiday program had ideal sailing conditions.
A group of young women from MLC attended a 4 day basic sailing skills course which had them sailing Access 303s, Ozi Optis, Pacers and 125s.
The course focused on having fun while improving capsize and recovery techniques as the weather was warm to hot.
Students were also taught how to rig, derig, launch and retrieve their boats.
