Welcome to GAC Sailing Club

Whether you have your own dinghy or just want to try your hand at sailing, GAC Sailing Club has something for everyone!

We are an inclusive, family-oriented, vibrant, friendly club that caters for a wide range of dinghy types, ages, genders and abilities. 

The club’s location, with easy parking and grassy banks for rigging makes it an ideal spot for a Sunday afternoon sail. Sailing events take place close to shore, so friends and family can easily watch from the clubhouse or the Bombora café next door. 

The river itself provides flat, fresh water and easy launching for beginners, while the shifting winds and obstacles provide interest and excitement in racing, building the skills of even the most experienced of sailors.

 

Our club runs a racing series, regattas, cruising days and learn to sail courses. Every aspect of the club from the start crew, safety boat drivers, coaches, race registration and results and those running the bar, do so on a volunteer basis. We have a great team of volunteers, some who know about sailing, and some who just like to be beside the water among friends.

The club owns a pacers and optis primarily for teaching sailing, that can be hired or leased by members. Please note, we do not currently have capacity to hire boats on an ad-hoc basis to non-members.

If you want to come and try sailing at our club, or would like to find out about volunteering, contact us via email GAC.Sailing@gmail.com , or chat to one of our committee after sailing on a Sunday afternoon. Check out our Facebook page to find out our members have been up to recently.
