About the project

We wish to raise funds to purchase additional powerboats so we can conduct more learn-to-sail courses and to maintain our current support boats for our sailing activities.


The Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club is a local sporting club located on the shores of Newcastle Harbour, NSW. We conduct sailing activities, both racing & cruising, and also run an active Sailing Academy which aims to introduce people to the sport of sailing through learn to sail courses for adults & children.


Our courses are run in our fleet of six Force 24 inshore keelboats and our new fleet of 12 OziOpti dinghies, which are perfectly suited to teach kids how to sail. We host many of the local school children for School Sailing activities and we also welcome Scouts & Guides groups for their sailing activities too.
