Avalon Sailing Club fundraising event:

We are a family oriented sailing club, sited at Clareville, on Pittwater, part of Sydney's Northern Beaches area in the Garigal Country of the traditional custodians. We are known for our friendly and relaxed atmosphere with our purpose to foster the love of sailing on the waters of Pittwater. We are particularly proud of all those children who first learned to sail at Avalon and continue to enjoy our sport, along with those who have gone on to represent Australia at the Olympics, Americas Cup, Sail GP and other world class events like the Sydney to Hobart. 

The Centreboard division includes training and racing. Our classes are Manly Junior, Open Skiff, Flying 11, Spiral, Laser, Waszp & Puffin Pacer. Avalon Sailing Club is a Discover Sailing Centre starting with Children around the age of 7 or 8. Find out more about our Learn to Sail program here.

Our Yacht Racing Program is designed around three inshore and two offshore series allowing members to race between one Sunday to every Sunday a month during the season. Find out more about Yacht Racing here.

Those who favour a less competitive approach to sailing enjoy the pleasures of cruising to beautiful locations and making use of the many Club moorings in the local area. We also have Adult learn to sail classes and activities for those new to the sport.

We are located on a beach, facing the body of water known locally as "the Pond" which is the preferred sailing location on Pittwater for learners in the morning and racers in the afternoons. Our commanding views up and down Pittwater are truely memorable for members and vistors alike.

Our Unique "Vibe" is a combination of our location, our relaxed & enthusiastic membership and our volunteer culture that makes everyone feel at home. The Club has a strong social aspect with monthly BBQ's on the deck, cruises, picnics, dinners and the like. 

Our Kids learn more than just boat handling and sailing skills. They learn about the weather, the environment, they learn resilience and leadership, how to help and teach others. Many make friendships for life with those they met here first.

Interested in joining or just want to see if sailing is for you ?

Come and see us on a Sunday, meet some of our members, and we can explore how to get you started. Whether you have no experience at all, and would like a taste of sailing, or a seasoned pro who’s ready to join in racing, we have many options.

Kids from 6 to about 12 years old sail in the mornings from 8:30 am through to lunch. Adults sail Centreboards (Lasers, Spirals, Aeroes etc) and Yachts in the afternoons from about 12:30pm to 4:30pm. The season runs from early September through to Easter, and the kids break for school holidays.

For those looking for a taste of sailing before joining; that could be joining the crew in a yacht race, taking a club Spiral for a trial or jumping on one of the support boats. We can provide you with an Australian Sailing “Sailpass” for free. This is the sport’s equivalent of a temporary membership that includes personal accident insurance for the day.

If it’s kids sailing you're interested in then see us in the mornings, if it's adult - then join us when the bar is opened after sailing from about 4pm.

2023 - 24 Season Calendar

Volunteering

Members volunteer at least twice a season, and many chose to almost every weekend, as the engagement is a very fulfilling one that brings them closer to their children and our local community

Members' enthusiasm and participation creates a great experience for all, especially the children, and maintains the family & community spirit that is the essence and foundation of our club.

Whether you have plenty of sailing experience or none at all, there are roles that will suit your ability. People are needed to run the canteen, help on the deck and on the water. 

Description of roles and detail on volunteering is on the Sunday Sailing Program web page
