The Club has a large number of Social (non-sailing) members who enjoy the family friendly atmosphere and entertaining social program and, of course, the spectacular outlook over Geographe Bay.

 
Clubhouse and Facilities

Twilight Race picThe Club is located on a large area of ocean front land with direct access to the beach. It has a large expanse of well kept grassed frontage for rigging boats, and also for entertainment. Barbecues, including a gas facility, are provided for members' use. The Club House consists of a modern brick building including hall, galley, licensed bar and lounge for the use of members. Sailing is controlled from a tower that overlooks Geographe Bay and from which radio contact is maintained with the Club's rescue boats.

Undercover boat storage is available for dinghys, and a secure hardstand compound provides safe storage for larger boats. The Club maintains tractors for launching the many trailer-sailers that compete from the Club.

Ample car parking is provided in the grounds, and for special sailing events, camping is available by arrangement. There are ideal vantage points for viewing sailing.
