Cruising Yacht Club of Australia

Cruising Yacht Club of Australia


The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) is Australia's premier yacht club and home to what is considered yachting's 'Everest' - the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

Nestled along the beautiful Rushcutters Bay foreshore, just 10 minutes drive from Sydney's CBD, the club enjoys stunning harbour views and world-class facilities and offers its 2,700 members and many visitors plenty of excuses to visit regularly.

The CYCA was established in 1944 and over the years has become Australia's leading exponent of ocean racing and sea safety. Its race management expertise is often called upon for other international sailing events such as the Olympics and round-the-world races.

The CYCA caters for the most passionate ocean racer to the social sailor with a full calendar of mid-week summer twilight and weekend offshore racing and Sunday winter racing. While the pinnacle for the most adventurous is to take on mother nature in the annual Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, others enjoy the competitiveness and camaraderie of the shorter ocean races that are run year-round. Appreciating the popularity of one design racing, the CYCA also hosts regattas for various one design classes.

One of the CYCA's most remarkable success stories is its youth training programs, for which members are encouraged to make a donation to.
