Founded in 1872, The Amateurs is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Australia. For almost 150 years we have brought together people with a love of boats and a love of sailing – this is still the core of everything we do today.
In a stunning location on the shore of Mosman Bay, The Amateurs is home to a diverse fleet of modern and classic yachts. Our slipway, workshops and moorings are a great asset for boat owners and our social events are enjoyed by members and guests.
If you would like to join the racing you can download our 2020-21 Sailing Programme. We race most weekends during spring and summer in addition to a popular Friday twilight series during daylight saving. After racing, stay on for a barbeque with friends – a great way to start the weekend.
Whether you’ve been sailing for years and would like to bring your boat to a great club, or whether you are a first time sailor looking to experience the fun, excitement and friendship of racing on beautiful Sydney Harbour, contact us to find out more about how you can be a part of a genuine sailing community at the Amateurs.
