Set sail for fun and friendship

Located just a short stroll from the end of Daveys Bay Rd in Mount Eliza is Davey’s Bay Yacht Club. Standing proud for over a century, this iconic venue has hosted many events and entertained many great sailors both on and off the water.

Focusing on sailing, friendship, socialising and fun, the club hosts an active sailing program for juniors, youths and adults every Sunday from October to April, with juniors sailing in the mornings and the senior fleet in the afternoons. The club has a fleet of Pacers and 420s, which are used for training and racing.

Peninsula schools are well represented at training sessions during the week, and each year the club conducts many regattas for various classes. This season its Pacers will be used with Girlsail, school and teams racing as well as learn to sail classes for adults. Youths can enjoy the two-handed 420s, Lasers and Moths.

Davey’s Bay YC has a large International Optimist fleet that will enjoy coaching on the protected waters off the club, and its growing Flying Fifteen fleet, which is the largest on the east coast, will be enhancing its skills with the Ossie McCutcheon Trophy on the weekend of October 21-22 in preparation for the national championships later in the year at Mornington Yacht Club.

Davey’s Bay Yacht Club is a great environment for family and friends and offers BYO catering with the most stunning views over a northerly aspect of the bay.
