Rye Yacht Club – Friendly, Informal, Welcoming
The sailing season at Rye Yacht Club commences early in October and finishes in mid to late April. Most Club racing is on Sundays. The Club sailing program includes a variety of courses and trophy series, with multi-division starts. Both VYC and Club handicapping are used. The Club also supports and encourages social sailing for people not wishing to compete in the racing program.
For those new to sailing, Club members are always willing to provide friendly assistance and advice on request.
Rye Yacht Club welcomes women to be involved in all aspects of the Club. If you would like to be involved, please let us know.
We also welcome non-sailing members who would like to avail themselves of the fantastic Club facilities on the Rye foreshore.

Canteen upgrade – fundraising
The canteen is more than 30 years old and with the growth of the Sailing School over the last 10 years, it has resulted in the canteen no longer being able to cope with the demands. We need a new kitchen that our fantastic volunteers can prepare the food in a clean safe environment. If you or your company would like to make a Tax-Deductable donation please do so here.
We are proud to announce a partnership with Gallagher Insurance that will help with our Club’s canteen upgrade! Through Gallagher’s SportsLink Program our members get access to some of the most competitive insurance schemes in the market and any policy written will directly benefit The Rye Yacht Club!
