Elwood Sailing Club has a proud history of recreational and competitive sailing for monohulls and catamarans. Our location has easy access from Melbourne suburbs, favourable sailing through the season and fresh summer breezes for Windsurfing. Races and Training are held on Saturdays from October to Easter supported by our race & rescue patrol. We host international, national and state title events. To become a member, learn to sail, or hire the facilities for a function don't hesitate to contact us.
It’s time to blow away the cobwebs and get the clubrooms ready for the new season, so we will be meeting at the clubrooms at 9 am on Saturday 20th September for a general clean up, wash down and chuck out session to be followed by a BBQ for lunch.

The General Committee has decided there will be no increases in annual membership fees for this season, however an average 5% increase to Storage annual fee for the 2014/2015 season is justified to cover increasing costs and contribute to planned building improvements. There will again be a Prompt Payment incentive for members who pay their annual subscription fees by the due date of 1st July,
