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’s floating marina comprises 180 marina berths of varying sizes, all with power and water, as well as a fuel wharf dispensing diesel and unleaded petrol and an effluent pump-out facility.
NCYC conducts keel boat racing on Sundays during the summer and winter months as well as twilight keelboat and Laser dinghy sailing on Wednesday and Friday afternoons, respectively. In addition to these regular events, NCYC also runs a number of longer offshore distance races as well as the Inner Spring Regatta, the Friendship Cup and the HMRI Cup.
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 both locally and from further afield. Please feel free to drop into NCYC and check out what the club can offer you both on and off the water!
