The Club

Located in the historic Borough of Queenscliffe, beside Swan Bay (you can see our location on the map), QLYC is a family friendly sailing club. Club members and visitors sail a variety of craft: dinghies, trailer sailers, small and large keelboats, and couta boats.
And windsurfing here and here. The club has some highly experienced racing sailors, who are enthusiastic and very encouraging to new members. QLYC is affiliated to Yachting Victoria and club races are conducted according to Yachting Australia rules.
Read through our Brochure for a more detailed description of the club.

The Club House

The QLYC club house and storage facility is beside Swan Bay. Turn off Nankervis Parade, (near the intersection with King Street) onto an un-named public road and follow it, crossing the railway, till you reach the club's site. (see Google Map above) The club has had facilities on this site for nearly ninety years. The club house enjoys a scenic location and has a fully equipped kitchen. Club members may use the club house for private functions. For private club member use of the club house and for dinghy storage please follow this link.

Racing

The club conducts races on Port Phillip Bay most Saturdays from early October to late April. As well as warmer season racing the club conducts a series of winter races.
The first winter race is planned for Sunday June 12. MEET 10-00 AM AT LIX CAFE IN THE HARBOUR FOR INSTRUCTIONS.
Have a look at the YouTube clip above: Club racing here is serious but friendly; this is a great place for social sailing and racing.
QLYC is an excellent club for newcomers who want to progress to class racing fleets at clubs like Royal Geelong, or Indented Head Yacht Club . Some members' boats are kept on the Parks Victoria controlled moorings in Swan Bay near the Cruising Yacht Club. Other boats are kept in pens at the re-developed Queenscliff Harbour. Just up the road is the informative and helpful Maritime Museum .
There is a double boat ramp at the north end of Hesse Street.
A pontoon at which trailable yachts may safely rig is located nearby, on the east side of the bridge to Swan Island.
Here is the homepage of the Geelong Trailable Yacht Club, and here is the Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club.
Here is another informative site for trailer sailors.
