About Us

We were founded in 1971

We run a regular, competitive yacht racing programme. We provide a social environment for members and visitors.

Sunset views

We have our own premises located in the northern part of Soldiers Point. This provides a friendly environment for sailors to share their stories and enjoy a drink after racing.

Friends and visitors are always welcome to join us for the lovely views across the marina and the western waters of Port Stephens.

Run by volunteers

Our club is run by a Board of nine members with the Commodore at the ‘helm’.

This ensures that the club steers the right course. We rely completely on the invaluable help of volunteers to ensure its smooth running.

In particular

  • those who run the Saturday races from the Starters Caravan at the tip of Soldiers Point, and
  • the bar staff, who ensure that the sailors and guests can enjoy a drink and a chat on Saturday and Wednesday afternoons while eagerly waiting for the results of the days racing.
