Docklands Yacht Club overlooks Victoria Harbour with sweeping views of the Melbourne City skyline and the ever changing Docklands precinct. From January 2016, sailing will take place from the 60 metre pontoon at our new premises - the Community Boating Hub, 912 Collins Street, adacent to the Library at Dock Square. Community Sailing days are normally the second and fourth Sunday of each month year round from 11am but are subject to change (check Calendar page for more details). Everyone is welcome. We supply the boats, lifejackets and instruction.
Remaining Short Course Series dates announced
The 3 remaining dates in the 2015/16 Short Course Racing calendar have been announced.
February 21st, April 3 and May 15 will be the final dates for the series, which has seen several dates postponed and combined into the Australia Day Short Course regatta, due to our move to the new building.
Due to the absence of our Race Officer, the originally scheduled date of April 17th has been postponed to May 15th. Racing on May 15, 2016 will be conducted in conjunction with the Docklands Short Course Regatta
Competitors who were registered for the Australia Day Short Course Regatta are not required to pay for the 3 remaining dates. Anyone else who wishes to attend these 3 days, should complete the registration form attached to the Notice of Race. Any single day's racing costs $10, with the 3 remaining dates costing $30. Subject to availability, club boats may be available for non-Club member competitors for an additional fee of $10 per day.
Up to 8 short races may be scheduled on each day with races generally lasting 10-20 minutes. Short Course racing is a great, fun way to enjoy racing in a fun, friendly environment. It is perfect for sailors wishing to brush up their racing skills, and for newcomers to learn about and practice racing tactics.
