Merricks Yacht Club

Merricks Yacht Club Foundation


Merricks Yacht Club was founded in 1964 as a small yard on the foreshore for the many enthusiastic sailors and fishermen in the holiday township of Merricks Beach.

Since then it has grown into a popular local club which provides a great meeting place for local residents and holiday makers alike.

The sailing is friendly but competitive, and the club has produced some keen and accomplished sailors over the years. We have a keen gang of junior sailors, and an active junior sailing program over the summer, for newcomers and more experienced sailors alike.

Classes sailed at Merricks include: Laser, 420, Sabre, Impulse, Sparrow, Optimist, A Class, Mosquito, Castle 650, Explorer 16.

Come down to sail or enjoy the atmosphere and the after-race and Thursday evening happy hours.
