Canberra Yacht Club
Local Clubs - Yarralumla, ACT
Canberra Yacht Club located at Yarralumla provides recreational opportunities, facilities, racing, training opportunities through a non profit sailing school and youth sailing academy for everyone.
The Canberra Yacht Club was founded in 1959 as a focus for people from the ACT and surrounding regions who enjoy sailing. The Club provides recreational opportunities as well as organised racing on Lake Burley Griffin, usually on a Sunday and during the warmer months twilight sailing on a Wednesday evening.
More information is available on our facilities, racing and events pages. We also offer a full range of training and discovery opportunities through our accredited non profit Sailing School and Youth Sailing Academy. The club puts a strong emphasis on training and opportunities for young people as members of the Club's Youth Racing Squad.
The CYC also offers easy access to sailing for people of all ages through the hire of boats to people with some sailing ability. We also operate a boat shop with a wide range of fittings and paints.
Sailing is a sport for all ages, abilities and circumstances. You can spend as much or as little as you like. It is family oriented and opens up the scope for great holidays in places that non-sailors rarely see along Australia’s coastlines and inland lakes and waterways.
