About Avalon Sailing Club

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.
