We welcome visiting sailors to join in our Saturday races, whether you are have an OTB or trailable boat. The fee for visiting boats is $15 which is processed through the Sailpass portal.

Make yourself known to members and they can assist you. Our race briefing occurs generally at 12.30pm inside the clubhouse. There is a canteen for lunches, change rooms and hot showers, and valuables can be secured safely in the canteen while you race. There is a visitor’s sign-on sheet for racing and you should make yourself known to the Officer of the Day. After races we have a BBQ on the upstairs deck, with the Club bar open for refreshments. Please come and join us.


All day parking is available along the Strand. Please park on the Yarra river side of The Strand if you have a trailer. The club now has a grassed parking area between the toilet block and boat ramp, where trailers can be parked after unhitching from cars. No cars can be parked on or near the grassed area. We have a commitment to local residents regarding no parking on the west side of The Strand with trailers: we don't do it! 

Rigging of Trailerable yachts

Rigging of yachts is either done on the river side of The Strand or in the grassed rigging area between the toilet block and boat ramp. If you are rigging on the Strand always look up for power lines and live.

If you park your Boat trailer and rig it on the grassed area, qualified club members will assist you by using our 4WD to launch your boat down the ramp. Just ask members for some assistance.

Rigging of OTB boats is done on our extensive Rigging decking - your road trailer can be left on the grassed area outside the gates.

If you are unsure as to how to go about launching your boat, please ask a club member for assistance. Remember:

  • never drive off from the club with your mast raised,
  • don't be pressured into leaving the ramp before completing your safety checks,
  • be sure your boat is secure and safe before moving to a parking area.
