About the project

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

With the popularity and success of our sailing activities, we often find we cannot run concurrent sailing due to a shortage of support resources.

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 a very 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.
