Members and visitors to CYCA enjoy being part of an active Club in a superb location with state-of-the-art facilities and an international reputation that attracts yachts and crews from all over the world for the climax of the sailing calendar and one of Australia’s greatest sporting icons – the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

Nestled along the beautiful Rushcutters Bay foreshore, just 10 minutes drive from Sydney’s CBD, the club enjoys stunning harbour views and world-class facilities and offers its Members and many visitors plenty of excuses to visit regularly.

CYCA caters for the most passionate ocean racer to the social sailor with a full calendar of mid-week summer twilight and weekend offshore racing and Sunday winter racing.

While the pinnacle for the most adventurous is to take on mother nature in the annual Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, others enjoy the competitiveness and camaraderie of the shorter ocean races that are run year-round.

The original Marina and Clubhouse are long gone and in their place is a floating marina and world-class yacht club that offers five-star function rooms, alfresco dining on the deck, and all the support services a boat owner needs.

One of CYCA’s most remarkable success stories is its youth training program, the Youth Sailing Academy (YSA). Since 1993, the YSA has seen thousands of students graduate from its learn to sail through to advance courses, some going on to represent their club and country on the international match racing circuit.
