No Community Sailing November 8th

by DYC

As we have a limited number of people available on Sunday 8th (this sunday) we have decided that the Club will be CLOSED for Community Sailing on Sunday.

There is no further info from City of Melbourne regarding when we will have access to the new building to move our boats and equipment. As soon as we know, we'll let you know. The next couple of weeks on the calendar are listed as TBC, so once the move dates are confirmed, we will update the calendar accordingly.

We haven't had much of a chance to race so far this summer, with the first short course series abandoned and the second one currently TBC ... however..
Royal Brighton have kindly invited the Hansa Classes to be part of their annual OTB regatta - The George Mac. 
To be held over the weekend of November 21 & 22 this year, the regatta will bring together OTB sailors of all ages. We will cater for a broad range  of classes - all junior and youth classes, as well as selected open classes including International 2.4mRs, RS100s, RS200s, Pacers and Vipers.  There is more information at, including the Notice of Race and Online Entry. Entries close November 18th
Is there any interest from anyone in the Club to sail at this event? Entry is $60 for the single person class, which includes the racing across the 2 days and a t-shirt. We now have 7 x 303's as well as our Liberties, which if we had enough interest, we could possibly ask to be included also.
If you are interested, please contact us ASAP at

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.
