Docklands Yacht Club sails on

Docklands Yacht Club sails on Image

Docklands Yacht Club continues to grow, especially since being appointed an official Yachting Australia training centre. 

Several school students participated in DYC’s “Get Into Small Boat Sailing” courses during November, with more classes scheduled for this month as well.

DYC Training School principal Ray Allen (pictured at work below) predicts a solid year ahead for the club’s new training centre.

“The sheltered waterways of Victoria Harbour are being recognised as an ideal location for beginners to learn to sail small boats,” Mr Allen said.

Newly-appointed commodore David Ashburner heads the club committee team’s development plans for the new year.

“These will include more mid-week training classes, special events and, most importantly, a new program offering sponsorship opportunities. This sponsorship program will enable DYC to continue to build up the home fleet," Mr Ashburner said.  "The planned introduction of Pacer dinghies, plus Optis for the kids, will greatly boost our on-water presence.”

DYC is now regularly visited by yachting enthusiasts. Yachts of all sizes are seen by the clubhouse dock at Shed 2, North Wharf Rd, Victoria Harbour. 

Exciting new connections are also being made. The club has recently joined both the Docklands Community Association and the Docklands Chamber of Commerce. 

The club’s regular community sailing program is an excellent introduction to Docklands Yacht Club.  The club encourages the Docklands community to try sailing on the second and fourth  Sundays of the month throughout the year.
