The Wooden Boat Association are inviting all Williamstown Sailing Club members to join them in a Wooden Boat Day at our club on Sunday 23rd March. The group plan to launch their boats at the club by 10am and will be using the club boat ramp and facilties during the day. All WSC members who have an interest in wooden boats are welcome to join in the Association's activities for the day. There will be row boats, canoes, fishing boats and sailing boats of all shapes and sizes. Bring your boat down and compare them with those of the avid enthusiasts. Some boats will just be moored at the jetty, others will sail, paddle, row or motor around the area. You are welcome to join members of the Wooden Boat Association for a self catering BBQ on the upper deck from about midday. We will arrange to have the bar open over lunch. Come along and share the joy of wooden boats, both old and new.
Come and join in a night of Mexican food, fun and music at the Club on Saturday 29th March. The event is open to all Club members, family & friends but numbers will be limited. So get in early and book your tickets. Bring some family & friends and book a table, or just come along and join in the event. The evening will kick off at 7.00pm till late. Dinner will be served at 7.30pm Cost: Adults $ 20 Under 18 $10. We have some live ' Latin Music' to complement the theme, so come along and dance the night away. Tickets must be prepurchased at the canteen on Saturdays or can be ordered by emailing email@example.com
A putt, putt up the Yarra River to Herring Island is planned for Sunday 30th March - departing from Club jetties at 10am.
The journey takes approximately 2 hours and will take you through the heart of Melbourne along the River. BYO food and drinks for BBQ lunch.
If you don't own a fishing boat, old clinker, or de-masted sailing boat with an outboard put your name down on the list at the club and you'll be allocated a place on an available boat.
For the 2013/14 season we are introducing some new rosters for sailing members to help with club operations on Saturdays. The workload to run and operate the club needs to be shared amongst more people. We are introducing two rosters- one to help serve in the canteen, and one to run the after race BBQ's. For most members you have only been allocated to a roster once during the season.
Situated in Williamstown on The Strand with million dollar views of the Melbourne skyline, our club is a family oriented club that caters for sailors and fishermen as well as those who enjoy the more social side of boating.
As we are half way through the WSC sailing season it’s time to compile a list of jobs that need to be done during this year’s working bees. So if you see anything that needs to be repaired or replaced (safety and security in particular), make a note of it on the whiteboard located outside the training room. Alternatively bring it to the attention of a flag officer or member of the Committee of Management. New members with a fresh set of eyes that may see things around the club that could be improved are encouraged to make a contribution.
