Sailing at TCYC
Sailing at The Cruising Yacht Club of WA Inc.
Sailing at TCYC is conducted every Saturday throughout summer. The season Opening Day is always on the Sunday of the WA Queens Birthday long weekend. Over Christmas New Year is the famous Cockburn Sound Regatta.
Saturday mornings are taken up with junior sail training. Saturday afternoon combines senior and junior racing. There are also many special sailing events throughout the year.
All classes racing are handicapped by performance, so everyone has equal changes of picking up a win. Click for more information on Handicapping.
These rules will take effect from Jan 1st 2017
Special Regulations for Racing Boats:
There is always some paperwork that has to be completed before racing can commence.
All the relevant documents can be dowloaded here.
We also receive lots of visitors who wish to sail in the magnificent waters of Cockburn Sound. The visitors range from dinghies to offshore ocean racers. If your club or association would like to vist or sail at TCYC please contact our Rear Commodore Sailing, firstname.lastname@example.org
