Do the yachts Race?

Absolutely, we have up to 30 yachts regularly racing in the Pittwater area, courses are varied in length and style, generally racing is on Sunday afternoon and occasionally Saturday regattas, but we also have a cruising division ...

I prefer cruising to racing. Do you have a cruising program?

Yes we have a cruising program and some very enthusiastic and experienced skippers. Cruising tends to be in local waters with some coastal cruising when the weather and time permit, The Club has a number of moorings scattered over Pittwater and Broken Bay and weekend raft ups are very popular. Check out our cruising pages elsewhere on this site. 

Does the Club have moorings?

Yes we have a number of moorings off the Clubhouse and these are leased to members by preference. In addition we have a number of cruising moorings. These are located in Towlers Bay, Coasters Retreat, Refuge and Americas Bay and are available for use by all paid up ASC members. 

How often is the Clubhouse open?

The Club is run by the members on a voluntary basis and is open for racing every Sunday during the season. That said you'll often find members at the club on just about every day of the week and certainly on weekends.

What social events does the Club hold?

These are many and varied. The fact is that the Club is as much about social activity as is about on water activities with members free to use the cllub with friends and family on non sailing days.

Are there any opportunities to crew on club members yachts?

Yes. Just present at the Club on any Sunday and make it known to the OOD (Officer of the Day) that you are looking for a crew spot. Nothing can be guaranteed but there is every chance that you will get a spot on one of the yachts. 

What class yachts do you race?

Anything and everything from small lift keel boats through to dedicated racers like Etchells and Young 88's and cruising yachts like 40 foot Hanse, Beneteau and the like. All club racing is on a handicap basis so everyone gets a chance to win. 

Do you have a licenced bar?

Yes, on sailing days and special events. 

I have noticed your duty roster. What is a duty?

ASC is run by it's membership. We do not have any paid staff (apart from our coaching team and support crew) . As a result it is club members who operate the canteen, start the races, run the rescue boats and in general make the Club buzz. This is all done on a roster system and each member is asked to do "duty" once a year at least. 

How do I apply for membership?
