Welcome to the Williamstown Sailing Club

The Williamstown Sailing Club is situated in the heart of historic Williamstown on Hobsons Bay.

We place an emphasis on family membership to create a friendly atmosphere for sailing, fishing and social activities. Sailing occurs over the summer season (October - April) with organised racing every Saturday. For those who don’t mind the cold we also have a winter series held during May.

At present boats racing include Hartley TS16, Ultimate 16 and 18, Explorer 16, Kitty Catamaran, 125, Mirror, Sabre, Pacers and Impulse classes.

We cater for sailors with different levels of ability and experience, and run sail training programs and Discover Sailing days.

We also have a very active fishing fleet with around 80 members.

The Club extends invitations to other clubs and class associations to join in the races and conducts National, State and local championship regattas.

Hartley National Championships

The 50th Hartley TS16 National Championships titles were held at WSC from the 29 Dec - 5 Jan and were a testing time for competitors and the race management team alike.  The weather certainly played its part during this regatta with racing abandoned during the first Heat on Monday afternoon.

A successful Discover Sailing Day

What a great turn up there was for the Discover Sailing Day on Sunday 26 October. With ideal mild weather, the club played host to approximately 80 guests who came to ‘discover sailing’ through having a sail on club pacers and/or trailable boats, explore the club, enjoy the view and sample the BBQ. It was great to see so many families with primary and junior high school kids who were very keen to try sailing, and all gave us a big positive rap.
