Keelboat Racing

Seen as one of the finest yacht clubs on Port Phillip Bay, Sandringham Yacht Club (SYC) offers more than just competitive sailing, it harnesses a sense of community and invites all ages to participate. With a year round calendar, whether it be competitive racing or social sailing, you can immerse yourself in either.

With an ongoing drive to ensure our younger members (18 – 29 year old) involvement, an extensive range of keelboat programs are on offer, including the J24’s, which has continued to grow at SYC.

If you wish to help with these events rather than sail, then volunteering is open to all members regardless of your skill level. A comprehensive range of courses are also offered to help upskill our volunteers.

SYC is the premier keelboat club in Victoria, offering sailors world class facilities and racing in formats to suit all levels of competition. The sailing calendar includes racing such as regular laid and fixed mark courses, long distance races, two handed races, one design races and social racing during “Thursday Twilight” races in summer – all welcome, no experience necessary.

Whatever you choose to do with your time at SYC, I am sure you will enjoy being part of our world-class facilities at the premier keelboat club of Victoria.
