Our Clubhouse Project
Over the last year the Club has developed a Masterplan to look towards the future and build on the legacy and contributions of members over the past 50 plus years. Plans have been drawn up to significantly improve the Club’s facilities in a number of key areas
- Improved access for all members and guests and the installation of a lift.
- Refurbishment of the women’s changing room.
- New family change room, and first aid room.
- New multi purpose meeting room.
- Extended storage space for possible future extension of the kitchen and bar facilities.
- Landscaping to suit Masterplan.
Somers Yacht Club has one of the largest off the beach fleets in the State, having produced many State, National and International Champions and has established an enviable reputation for hosting such events – ensuring sailing continues to be a strong and well represented sport for all ages.
Local community groups such as Somers State School, Probus Clubs, Somers CFA and other organisations have also made good use of the Club’s unique facilities. Outside of the sailing calendar the club house is available to members, guests and businesses for functions such as weddings or corporate events.

Our club facility is in need of some major maintenance and renovation.
This new idea and concept can encompass our initial requirements and is well worth considering.
|In the later part of last summer we prepared a SYC Masterplan that looked forward at a range of possibilities that all built on the legacy and contributions of the past 50 + years.|
It centred around ensuring our maintaining long term relevance and through up a number of possible projects that were scalable and acknowledged timeframes and our ability to fund.
We sought inputs from members to guide the functional and operational aspects of the club and the words that seemed to be repeated across the many conversations were;
Over the winter we have further developed the options and have improved the proposed entry / arrival experience for our members and friends. The concept was presented to members at the AGM with a Q & A session which provided valuable feedback.
