|Club's Optimist Sailing Information|
The Claremont Yacht Club Dinghy section enjoys a unique and exclusive part of the Swan River. We sail on the northern half of Freshwater Bay and are the only fleet using this area on Sunday mornings. In addition, because of the size and shape of the area we are able to set full and proper courses in any breeze direction. The area is away from the River channel used by the Ferries and Launches, which makes sailing safer and devoid of bad wash. No other Club has these conditions.
We are a friendly Club, with people of all ages participating in racing and coaching. If you have a boat, you will be very welcome to come and sail with us as a trial, and to then join. If you don’t have a boat, you can hire one of our Club Lasers, Mirrors, or Optimists on a trial basis, and if you wish to continue, you can join and hire a Club Boat for the season at a reasonable rate.
If you are a beginner, people are available to help with instruction on and off the water. The storage of boats is in a locked shed, and the rack system allows individuals to access their boats on their own without needing any assistance. Rigging is done on the lawn abutting the storage shed, and is close to the water, allowing the boats to be launched by one person.
The races are run from a start boat, and two rescue/training boats are also on the water. Races are conducted on Sunday mornings, and occasionally we join in with the Cruisers for an afternoon or twilight sail.
Presentations are made in the Clubhouse, which has a bar, casual seating, dance floor, internal barbeques, and shower/toilet facilities. The bar area is right next to the rigging area, and it is open for drinks and snacks, such as prepared rolls, after the races, and parents can supervise their children in comfort from this area.
Please contact us by phone or email, or come down on a Sunday morning, preferably between 8.30am and 9.30am, and you will be made welcome.
