Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club - Winner Australian Sailing Yacht Club of the Year 2019
The Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club is located at Wickham in the all-weather, deep water, working port of Newcastle. The Club’s precinct includes a marina, shipyard & maintenance facilities, commercial center & licensed club.
Our floating marina comprises 180 marina berths of varying sizes, all with power and water, as well as a 24hr self-service fuel wharf dispensing diesel and unleaded petrol and an effluent pump-out facility.
The Club conducts keelboat racing on Sundays as well as twilight racing and Laser dinghy sailing on Wednesday and Friday afternoons during the warmer months. We also host a number of offshore distance races as part of our Blue Water PointScore as well as the pre-season NSW Country Yachting Championships.
We welcome newcomers to our growing Sailing Academy. We provide a pathway from 6yrs to 60+yrs with entry to Learn to Sail available for all ages! We are also proud to deliver the Youth Development Program which targets young sailors looking to work closely with a team under the guidance of one of our coaches to represent our club at events near and far.
With an ongoing objective of developing and promoting the sport of sailing in Newcastle, the club is focused on maintaining its welcoming approach and hospitable charm to both “old salts” and those new to sailing.
