Sailing with WYC

 Experience the Thrill of Sailing with Wollongong Yacht Club: Exciting Events All Year Round!

Dive into a world of sailing adventure with Wollongong Yacht Club (WYC)! Our year-round sailing calendar offers a fantastic blend of social sails and club races, ensuring there's something for everyone, every weekend.

Social Sails:
Embrace the joy of sailing with our bi-weekly social sails, perfect for unwinding on the water without the racing pressure. We welcome experienced sailors to join as crew members. Remember, visiting sailors must register for a SailPass and contact before the day.

Gather at the clubhouse at 10 am to plan the day's sail, and after a day of fun, head back to Yachties Kiosk for refreshing, COVID-safe drinks.

Club Races:
Unleash your competitive spirit with our casual yet exciting bi-weekly club races.

Division Two: Gather at 10 am, start at 11 am.
Division One: Gather at 11 am, start at 12 pm.
Skippers receive a text message briefing from 10 am. Don't forget to run RaceQs!

Join us after the race for drinks and a complimentary sausage sizzle!



Our exhilarating race lineup includes:

Pursuit: Fast-paced round-the-can races
Ocean Series: Challenging races, typically >20 NM
Season Series: Engaging races, about 10 NM
Lady Skipper Series: One special race each season
Coal Coast Classic: Interclub race with Sydney clubs during the October Long Weekend
Australia Day Regatta: 5 thrilling races over 3 days

To join one of our spectacular sailing events, arrive at the club at least an hour before the scheduled start time. Add an extra 30 minutes for a pre-sailing coffee! Find us at Belmore Basin in Wollongong Harbour.

Winter Schedule: With shorter days, we meet at 10 am for a quick briefing before heading out on Trim (our club tender, named after Matthew Flinders' cat) for an 11 am race or social sail start. Don't miss the boat!

Summer Schedule: Sundays are different, with an 11 am briefing and a 12 pm start. Plus, enjoy the added bonus of Twilight Sailing on Fridays!
