Rye Yacht Club - Friendly, Informal, Welcoming                    

The sailing season at Rye Yacht Club commences early in October and finishes in mid to late April. Most Club racing is on Sundays.
The Club sailing program includes a variety of courses and trophy series, with multi-division starts. Both VYC and Club handicapping are used.  The Club also supports and encourages social sailing for people not wishing to compete in the racing program.
For those new to sailing, Club members are always willing to provide friendly assistance and advice on request.
Rye Yacht Club welcomes women to be involved in all aspects of the Club. If you would like to be involved, please let us know.
We also welcome non-sailing members who would like to avail themselves of the fantastic Club facilities on the Rye foreshore.

Canteen upgrade project

The canteen is more than 30 years old and with the growth of the Sailing School over the last 10 years, it has resulted in the canteen no longer being able to cope with the demands. We need a new kitchen that our fantastic volunteers can prepare the food in a clean safe environment.  If you or your company would like to make a Tax-Deductable donation please do so below.


Discover Sailing

The Club is hosting Discover Sailing Days for the public to come along and learn more about and try sailing, on 12 November 2017, 7 and 26 January 2018.  To register to come along to the events, please go to Discover Sailing and search for Rye.  You can also download the Discover Sailing App for your mobile device.

Variety of Great Social Activities

The Social Sub-Committee organises many and varied social events during the year, appealing to everyone. Events are very family friendly, and young children are welcome to attend with a supervising adult.

Learn to Sail

The Club is a Yachting Australia Accredited training centre. You are most welcome to come along and discover the joy of sailing in a friendly and supportive environment.
