Sydney Amateur Sailing Club


Welcome to The Amateurs

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.

Download our Sailing Programme to find out about our racing divisions.  We are on the water most weekends throughout the year and run 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.
