Avalon Sailing Club is a family-oriented sailing club, sited at Clareville, on Pittwater.
Founded in 1938, with the clubhouse built in 1958, the Club has a proud history of offering a small, friendly environment for people of all ages and sailing interests. The Club promotes all aspects of sailing: dinghy racing, yacht racing and cruising and just having fun in boats.
