The Sailability "Sailing For Everyone" philosophy has been wholeheartedly adopted by DYC and growing inclusive participation is the cornerstone of our club. The protected nature of the Docklands waterway and the club's fleet of Hansa dinghies are ideal for introductory sailing programs and the development of basic skills for people of all ages and abilities.
With the club's move in January 2016 to a new purpose built accessible facility in Docklands, and being surrounded by a new emerging community and a broader metropolitan catchment area, there is tremendous potential for growing participation in recreational sailing, membership and volunteer numbers. New members and volunteers are always welcome.
Community Sailing Days are held from 11am - 4pm on the second and fourth Sunday of the month, year round. The cost of the day is $20 per person or $40 per family. This entitles you to day membership of the Club, insurance for water-based activities through the Yachting Australia insurance scheme, use of a boat, basic instruction, supervision and life jackets. Should you chose to become a member of DYC, your day membership cost is deducted from your full membership fee.
From October to April we run a short course racing program which helps to develop skills, technique and rules knowledge while enjoying some friendly competition. No previous racing experience is necessary.
This year-round participation and recreational sailing program for people of all ages and abilities underpins the Club's commitment to the whole community.
