The Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club (NCYC) is located at Wickham in the all-weather, deep water working port of Newcastle. NCYC’s precinct includes a marina, shipyard and maintenance facilities, commercial centre and licensed club.
NCYC conducts keel boat racing on Sundays during the summer and winter months as well as twilight racing and Laser dinghy sailing on Wednesday and Friday afternoons, respectively. NCYC also runs a number of offshore distance races as well as the Inner Spring Regatta, the Friendship Cup and the HMRI Cup and has also recently established the NCYC Sailing Academy.
With an ongoing objective of developing and promoting the sport of sailing in Newcastle, NCYC is focused on maintaining its welcoming approach and hospitable charm to both “old salts” and those new to sailing . Please feel free to browse the website, peruse NCYC’s journal (32’55) and drop into NCYC and check out what the club has to offer.
