Docklands Yacht Club is looking forward to having new facilities, maybe as soon as 2013.

 

Since 2009, DYC has been working with Dragon Boats Victoria and the Melbourne Outrigger Canoe Club, both of whom have shared Shed 2 with us since 2006, to develop a proposal for a purpose built Community Boating Centre.  Meetings have been held regularly between the groups, supported by Lend Lease Victoria Harbour.

 

A significant step forward for the project was confirmation of the Community Boating Centre’s inclusion in the recently Docklands Master Plan released by the City of Melbourne in conjunction VicUrban. 

 

There is much still to be done to bring this dream to a reality, but the Clubs have been cooperating closely and working actively to make it happen.  DYC Committee members David Staley, Cadeyrn Gaskin and Terry O’Donnell have been attending the steering committee meetings and been actively involved in developing the joint proposal and facility specifications.

 

More news when it is available.
