Go on Club Sailing & Social Events

All through the year, the Club will be arranging a number of weekend (and longer) sailing events. These will range from a Saturday and Sunday inside Sydney Harbour, to overnight passages up to Pittwater, Port Stephens and further afield.

For more information, visit our Sailing Calendar or the Expeditions and Holidays page.

Don't forget that anyone can Join The Club for £30/$50 a year.

From time to time, the Club will be organising group events for you to join in. There will be dinners, social events on-board and, of course, frequent day-sails, cruises over weekends and longer passages. But we love to try new things too.

What about a visit to Norah Head Search and Rescue Centre or an on-board "Remote area" first-aid course run by one of Australia's top experts in this field?

Community Awareness

Supporting our Oceans with fund raising for Sea-Shepherd

February's Social Sail was to raise money for Sea Shepherd's iconic whale-saving ship, The Steve Irwin.

Needing urgent engine repairs, we raised 0ver $2,500 raised on this fun sailing day for Sea Shepherd. They needed $200,000 to get the Steve Irwin back out there saving whales and protecting our oceans. And our contribution helped make that possible.

Looking forward to hearing from you about any really worthwhile eco- or poverty based fund raising we can help with.

Call Peter on 0405 430 525 to get more details.

Sailing with Tribal Warrior

We are currently talking to Shane Phillips of "Tribal Warrior" about arranging sailing days out on the harbour.

Many of us are privileged enough to have enjoyed Sydney's beautiful harbour from the water. Some others, whose families may have lived in the city for a long time, have never had that opportunity. We hope to enable more people to experience this aspect of their.


In the interests of safety, the yacht will always be under the supervision of a club-approved skipper.

For the club's Social sailing events, the Skipper is supplied by the Club. If you would like to use the Club yacht for your own social events or for group mile-building cruises, we can put you in touch with our Sailing Coach, who will be happy to make sure that your event is run safely (sample costs)

Only registered members of the Ocean Sailing Club are allowed on board the yacht for any sailing event. We will be happy to help you arrange your event or to come on one of the Club's own events. Just email or call us.
