Welcome to the Albert Sailing Club

Founded in 1948 as a family oriented club which promotes dinghy sailing for people of all ages, genders and levels of experience.

Over the years many people have developed and enjoyed their sailing at Albert Sailing Club. They have progressed to be people who enjoy sailing socially; many to be good club level racing sailors; and in quite a number of cases state, national or international champions. Tom King, multiple world champion and Olympic sailing Gold Medallist in 2000, learnt to sail and developed to be a world champion at Albert Sailing Club in the 1980’s and early 90’s.

This is 'The Famous Nursery Club', with emphasis on youth and strong family promotion - Training in all aspects in a friendly safe environment. Albert Sailing Club Inc. is an official Australian Sailing Training Centre. 

Visitors are always welcome.  Contact one of our committee members whose details are listed under the "Club" menu tab and arrange for you to come out onto Albert Park Lake for a close-up look at the action.  Or just come down to the club on a Saturday and speak with the friendly members.
