      Sydney Private Sailing



Once you have completed the Competent Crew Practical course, you are ready to start racing.  Middle Harbour Yacht Club at The Spit in Mosman is the closest yacht club to Sydney Private Sailing's base at Clontarf Marina.

Middle Harbour Yacht Club

Racing is a great way to gain sailing experience and meet new friends.  Most  boat owners don't mind you being inexperienced as long as you are willing to learn.  A yacht racing crew is a team and as with any team, what they are looking for from the crew is commitment, enthusiasm and a willingness to turn up every week through the sailing season.

Crew membership of Middle Harbour Yacht Club on Sydney Harbour costs $287 plus $43 for YA (Yachting Association Membership) and a $65 joining fee.

It's a good idea to go along to the club to fill in a crewing register form.  Winter Saturday racing is from 10 May onwards.  Be there by 9.30am to start at around 11am.  You can race up to 3 times without joining the club to see if you like it.  Wednesday afternoon social racing takes place all year round and twilight racing is on Thursday evenings during daylight saving hours.  For more details check their website or telephone them on (02) 9969 1244.

For information on racing with any other yacht clubs just telephone them  and ask how to go about racing with them.
