Latrobe Valley Yacht Club is about 90 minutes drive south-east of Melbourne. It is the home of the iconic Sauna Sail, held on the Queen's Birthday weekend in June, where the Hansa Class boats have been an invited class for many years. The sailing area is the cooling pond of the Hazelwood Power Station.

Accomodation is plentiful in nearby Morwell, Traralgon and Churchill. You can also camp at the venue. The Latrobe City Council has constructed camping facilities at Hazelwood Pondage. Some Powered sites are available along with shower and toilet block facilities.  There is plenty of room to camp.  You do not need to book.  The camping fees are to be paid to the Park Caretaker.
