Welcome to Deviot Sailing Club

We are located on the beautiful Tamar River Estuary, about half way between Launceston and Low Head. The clubrooms are situated on the western shore of the river just under 2 nautical miles south of the Batman Bridge, about 35 minutes drive north of Launceston.

Club days are most Saturdays from October through to late April. Deviot is an ideal location for sailing with reliable winds, a wide expanse of water, and the challenge of some interesting tidal patterns.  

DSC is active in the both the sailing and local communities, holding "Discover Sailing Days" a few times a season to allow new prospective members to come and give sailing a go.  We also hold hold a regular social night, every 3rd Friday of the month, throughout the year for the local community.  Additionally, DSC is a regular host for various state championships in several classes, and school sailing championships.  Come and visit us at Deviot to see why we love it so much!

Deviot Sailing Club is supported by the Tasmanian Government & West Tamar Council.
