The club has some highly experienced racing sailors, who are enthusiastic and very encouraging to new members. QLYC is affiliated to SAILING AUSTRALIA
and club races are conducted according to Australian Sailing rules.

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.

Racing

The club conducts races on Port Phillip Bay most Saturdays from early October to late April.
Visitors are welcome to participate in our races as competitors or as volunteer crew.
As well as warmer season racing the club conducts a series of winter races.

Have a look at the video clips above and below:
Club racing here is serious but friendly;
this is a great place for social sailing and racing and an excellent club for newcomers who want to progress to more serious competition.

Some members' boats are kept on the Parks Victoria controlled moorings in Swan Bay.
Other boats are kept in pens at the re-developed Queenscliff Harbour and marina.
The Club is grateful to the Harbour for its generous support.
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.
