Yacht Club growth continues

Yacht Club growth continues Image

By Terence O’Donnell

The Docklands Yacht Club Committee Team, led by Commodore Sonya Staley, is concentrating on the Club’s growth plans, to service the exciting developments proposed for Victoria Harbour. 

In particular of course, the proposal for the Docklands Community Boating Hub on North Wharf.

There is now a steady stream of adventurers visiting and ‘Trying Sailing’ at DYC.  And our membership continues to grow.

The DYC’s fleet of nine Access dinghys, supported by our four powered patrol vessels, provides a most popular and comfortable outing – especially for those who have not tried sailing before.

Our training program introduces club members and officials to ongoing special courses run by Yachting Victoria. We have a very healthy increase in credentials amongst our coaches, instructors, safety supervisors and race officers.

A significant step in development of Docklands Yacht Club is our most recent appointment as an official Yachting Australia training centre.

This is a major new asset for the Docklands precinct.

The club’s training school principal, senior instructor Ray Allen (a most highly-respected past Bayside Club Commodore) is delighted to open the first Get Into Small Boat Sailing (GISB Level 1) ‘Learn To Sail’ courses for both adults and juniors separately.

For more information about the GISB courses, see http://www.docklands.yachting.org.au. Mr Allen welcomes enquiries and bookings on 0429 868 304 or via email to (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Better still, visit The Docklands Yacht Club Community Sailing Program. We operate all year round every second and fourth Sunday from 11am until 4pm.
