Operating out of the club’s junior clubhouse, the young members can learn to sail and have access to holiday courses and coaching on a variety of dinghies suited to their skill level under the guidance of experienced teenagers and adults.

The bigger yachts either race in one of three divisions or go cruising together and some do both. Start sailing, VHF radio, first aid and recreational skipper’s ticket courses are offered regularly.

The club offers a full range of eating and bar facilities together with organised social activities that cater for all family members.

Visit Hillarys Yacht Club on Northshore Drive to see the facilities and try sailing. For more details, call 9246 2833.
