RAN Sailing Association (RANSA)
Local Clubs - Darling Point, NSW
RAN Sailing Association is located in Darling Point, offering members with private functions and venue hire, club facilities, Rushcutter Room and more.
RAN Sailing Association has a busy racing schedule throughout the year, including a Winter Point Score Series on Saturdays, a Midweek Series on Wednesday afternoons, and a Friday Twilight Series during the summer months. Additionally, RANSA is a keen supporter of Navy sailing activities. Social events are also regular items on our calendar. Monthly "theme" dinner nights and after race barbeques are very popular, as are weekend cruises and annual "Pirate's Day".
At RANSA, membership is open to all serving and retired Naval personnel, and Service membership is open to serving and retired Army and Air Force personnel. A category of membership for non-service personnel is also available.
Members may use the premises, in the arrangement, for private functions, including the Rushcutters Room which seats sixty and the new undercover area. A slipway is available to members, rated to 4 tonnes, at a nominal fee. Moorings are available at very competitive rates. Their numbers are limited however and, dependant on availability, preference is given to current serving members in the RAN.
Those who do not own their own boat and wish to sail are encouraged to come down the club on race days and usually, there will be a place on a member's boat. RANSA runs primarily on a volunteer basis. Members are asked to do occasional bar duties and provide assistance where possible. This proves to be a great way to get to know members!
