Social Sailing Days :  currently suspended due to the Corona virus situation

Generally once per month on a sunday in the warmer months, the club will be open for social sailing from 10am to 3.30pm. This provides a good opportunity for club members and their guests to come down and enjoy the club facilities and take a non-competitive sail on Albert Park Lake.

People who are interested in learning more about Albert Sailing Club and sailing on Albert Park Lake are most welcome to come down as visitors. If it is a good day we may be able to give you a try out Discover Sailing Experience.

Club members can sail their own boat or make use of a club boat depending on your experience level and the weather conditions. The clubhouse and decking are available for socialising and relaxation. The BBQ and galley can be used for lunch and tea/coffee, etc. during the day.
