Elwood Sailing Club has a proud history of recreational and competitive sailing for monohulls and catamarans with 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 and 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.

Top of the Bay Challenge

The 2023 Top of the Bay Challenge will be held at Port Melbourne Yacht Club on Saturday 11th February. Racing will start at 2:00pm.  Depending on numbers, we may deploy Seahorse 1 as a safety escort for boats sailing to the regatta from Elwood and back again.  If you are interested in sailing in the Top of the Bay, please let Amanda know so we can finalise support plans.

Changes to the by-law Section 4 covering Boatshed and Outside Storage

The General Committee has approved changes to the by-law Section 4 covering Boatshed and Outside Storage. The changes relate to:

 – Use of the Sailor App instead of cards to sign on and off for races, which feeds in to the storage points calculation

 – SUP storage allocation process

 – Ability for a member to store one SUP within that members allocated boat storage spot

 – Storage of  A-class catamaran beach wheels on the boat unless used for ground level storage, and removal of rudders from A-class in their storage spots when practical.

 – Approval required for storage of a boat on the floor in the general area, for a maximum of one week

 – Potential penalties in the event of a breach of any storage by-law will include a 5 point storage penalty, or removal of the offending boat/equipment to the outside storage area pending resolution

 – Other minor changes

The revised Bylaws are available here
