The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia is currently undergoing renovations – here’s the latest on the new-look Clubhouse, set to open in October.

As the home of the internationally renowned Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia is a unique venue for functions, meetings and celebrations.

Just ten minutes from the Sydney CBD and steeped in sailing history, the club is situated between green parklands and quiet, inner harbour waters with views over the bustling marina to the Sydney city skyline.

The CYCA offers full function co-ordination services and award-winning cuisine from Blond Catering for a wide range of functions – meetings, corporate functions, weddings, cocktail parties, presentations and more.

The Clubhouse of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia recently closed to undergo a major refurbishment in preparation for the 75th anniversary of the club and the Sydney Hobart Race in 2019.

During the renovation period, Blond is operating from a 20m x 10m marquee with fully functioning bar, bistro and external seating areas.

The temporary Clubhouse and outdoor seating is popular with Members and guests alike.

From October the newly refurbished upstairs function and meeting rooms will be available, with state-of-the-art facilities, enhanced marina and parkland views. Book your function now!

In the interim, Blond can assist with casual group bookings and social functions in the marquee or the surrounding outdoor areas of the temporary clubhouse.

Function rooms

The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia will have two main function rooms (Freya Room and Morna Room) which are available with views overlooking the marina towards the the Harbour bridge.

These two rooms can be used seperately for small and medium sized function with the option of combining them to create one large function area which is able to seat 220 people and for cocktail functions can accommodate over 300.
