Mackay Yacht Club is situated in the vibrant, tropical city of Mackay on the Central Queensland Coast.

We are ideally positioned for easy access to the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands, as well as the largely pristine Cumberland Island Group. Our proximity to the first class facilities of Mackay Marina is another advantage. The club has an active and friendly sailing community, with activities to suit everyone - whether you are a seasoned yachtie, a junior in your first Sabot, or someone just looking to have a relaxing day on the water.

Off the water, our clubhouse offers members and guests stunning beach and marina views, a family-friendly atmosphere, great food, and live entertainment.

We look forward to seeing you at the club!

Social Sailing at MYC 2018

SOCIAL SAILING

 Social sailing is an activity that the club runs on some Saturdays throughout the year. This is something the anyone can participate in. 

Further details are available under Sailing in the main menu above.

We meet at the marina at 12 noon and are usually back in by 4. So if you want to join us contact Bob on 4956 2618 or mazandbob01@bigpond.com and reserve a spot.

You don’t even have to have been out on the water on any sort of boat. You will now have the chance to go for a quiet sail on a yacht to get an idea of what sailing is all about. You will be taken out with an experienced skipper and crew and you will get a chance to try steering the vessel and trimming the sails. Or you can just sit back and relax.

 

The following dates are possible social sailing days.
