About the project

Somers Yacht Club is a hub for off-the-beach sailing on Western Port Bay and a social hub for the community. 

Over the last year the Club has developed a Masterplan that looks to the future and builds on the generous legacy of members over the past 50 years.


Plans have now been drawn up to improve the Club’s facilities:

• Improved access for all members and guests – including a new lift

• Refurbishment of the women’s changing room

• New family change room and first aid room

• New multipurpose meeting room.

• Additional storage space.

 

Somers Yacht Club has one of the largest off-the-beach fleets in the State with regular competitive and recreational sailing and a growing successful sailing school. We have produced State, National and International Champions and have established an enviable reputation for hosting championship regattas for all age groups.  Local community groups such as Somers State School, Service Clubs, Somers CFA, and other organisations also enjoy use of the Club’s facilities, and the clubhouse is also available for hire.

 

The Club cannot fund this project from normal resources, so we are asking members, the community and businesses for support.

Buy A “Brick”

In recognition of donations of the following amounts, donor names will be engraved on a "brick" at the clubhouse.

 PLATINUM “BRICK” $10,000

GOLD “BRICK” $5,000 

SILVER “BRICK” $2,500

BRONZE “BRICK” $1,000


Of course, all donations would be greatly appreciated. Naming recognition may be available.

This is your opportunity to ensure the legacy of this great club continues for future generations of sailors, members, guests, and the local community groups who enjoy these marvellous clubhouse facilities
