The Royal Geelong Yacht Club is recognised as one of Australia’s premier Yacht Clubs and boasts a proud history that stretches more than 150 years. The Royal Geelong Yacht Club plays host to many major yachting events, including the largest keelboat regatta in the Southern Hemisphere, the Festival of Sails annually and the biennial Wooden Boat Festival of Geelong. The excellent facilities give members the opportunity to enjoy true absolute water frontage and enjoy the best view that any yacht club can offer. Take in the views from the Members’ Lounge, the Marina Cafe deck or the upstairs balcony. No other facility in Geelong can match the location. A first class cadet facility provides young sailors with the opportunity to learn from some very accomplished club sailors who include State, National and even World Champions. Novice sailors will be warmly welcomed and encouraged to develop new skills and new friendships.
