Sandringham yacht club
Melbourne (Sandringham), Victoria, Australia
Sandringham Yacht Club’s history can be traced back to the Port Phillip Yacht Club (PPYC), which was originally established in 1903 adjacent to the current public jetty. The present day club burgee was the original burgee of the old PPYC, founded at Picnic Point in 1903. Situated on the foreshore of Port Phillip Bay, the Sandringham Yacht Club (SYC) is Melbourne’s premier sailing club, presenting world class sporting and event facilities right on the water’s edge. SYC’s current Membership is 2,500 members
Our 340 berth floating marina, boating academy, waterfront support services, newly built clubhouse and reciprocal privileges with yacht clubs worldwide, offers Melbourne sailors an incomparable membership opportunity. Whether you’re an experienced hand or exploring a new venture to discover the sea, SYC welcomes you.
SYC members enjoy a lively club atmosphere thanks to year round industry events, boating activities and sailing regattas. Our a la carte restaurant offers a special dining experience with picturesque views across the bay, as do our Members’ Lounge and Members’ Bar where you can sit and relax with a wine or coffee.
Boating programs and competition sailing
Weekend racing and junior coaching programs combined with local and international regattas have firmly established SYC’s reputation as one of the best sailing clubs in Australia. Keelboat racing takes to the bay up to four times a week, providing wonderful social and skill development opportunities for everyone, while the Off the Beach Sailing Centre focuses on dinghy sailing opportunities through a structured pathway and highly active sailing program. We also frequently run relaxed lunch cruises and fishing competitions for everyone to enjoy.
