Commodore’s Welcome

Welcome to the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.

Thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to discover more about what our club offers to Members, guests and the Geelong community.

The Royal Geelong Yacht Club, which was established in 1859, has grown with Geelong over the years, and we are excited about our plans for the future.

Throughout this website you will be able to find information about our member services, yacht racing and power boating, national and international regattas, learn to sail programs and more.

RGYC is host to the largest sailing regatta in the southern hemisphere; Festival of Sails, and the biennial Wooden Boat Festival of Geelong. I encourage you to explore the event websites for future dates, entertainment and on-water programs, as well as enjoy the wonderful photos and videos from years gone by.

If you have any questions, please contact our friendly staff on (03) 5229 3705, email us at [email protected], or drop in to the club during opening hours to see what we’re all about.

I wish you the best with your boating activities and look forward to meeting you at RGYC soon.

Roger Bennett
