Albert Park Yacht Club celebrated its 150th anniversary on 26 February. Celebrations included a Sail Past salute and Opening Day Bracelet Race and are anticipated to be a significant and memorable part of that history.
Albert Park Yacht Club has a rich history of sailing on the lake since 1871 and is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Australia. It began when the Colony of Victoria was only thirty-five years old, and Melbourne was a collection of townships. Albert Park Yacht Club is the oldest continuing inland yacht club in Victoria. Many people have learned and developed their sailing at Albert Park Yacht Club. They have progressed to enjoy sailing socially; many to be good club level racing sailors; and in quite several cases state, national or international champions.
APYC is welcoming new members if you are interested in learning to sail. Applications forms are available on the website
