Northbridge Sailing Club
Located on the protected waters of Sydney's beautiful Middle Harbour, Northbridge Sailing Club is an important part of the lifestyle for many local families. Children learn to sail in calm water away from the busyness of the main harbour and dinghy sailors of all ages enjoy the competition of regular club sailing.
Members range from laid back to the highly competitive. Ages from 5 to 95. The club races a number of dinghy classes and members compete at all levels. Being a local club means the social aspects of membership are particularly important. Children and teenagers particularly revel in the freedom of the informal club environment where they can hang out with friends. Parents like the fact it is a healthy outdoor environment away from computers and television. Friendships formed on the deck, and travelling to regattas, will last a lifetime.
The sailing season is from the first Sunday in September until Easter, normally April. See the Calendar for details of this season's program. Regular social events include the Club Championship BBQ held about once a month. These are popular events and generally an easy Sunday evening meal for families going to work and school the next day.
The annual Live-In Camp held each January is a must for many kids and is recommended for developing sailing skills and confidence in young sailors. New members are welcome. New sailors should have a look at the Sailing School page for our Learn to Sail programs.
