The Bellerive Yacht Club was established in 1926 to promote and encourage yachting and to provide facilities for its Members. The club is a family club with over 1,000 members and partners and children are encouraged to participate in all club events and activities.
Improvements are continually being made to all club facilities and the club prides itself on providing good facilities at very competitive rates.
The Club has a varied and interesting yachting program with summer and winter pennant racing, as well as numerous special events such as the Crown Series Bellerive Regatta. The very popular Twilight Series is conducted on Wednesday evenings during daylight savings. Skippers are encouraged to bring friends along as crew and to enjoy a casual meal back in the clubhouse afterwards. Twilights are the ideal opportunity to learn to sail and new crew members are welcome on many boats. In February each year the club runs Tasmania’s premier sailing event, the Crown Series Bellerive Regatta. Around 100 keelboats and 120 dinghies provide a spectacular display of sail on the Derwent.
The Sail Trainig project was established to allow the BYC to have a dedicated, fit for purpose, sail training vessel. Please support this vital club project by making a tax deductible donation today!
