Yacht Racing –  one of the cheapest and easiest sports to get involved in. ( As crew anyway!)

Manly Sailing crew love their racing and are always keen to get in amongst the fleets on Sydney Harbour and at some of the biggest events in Australia and Overseas.

Check out our YouTube Channel manlysailing for lots of footage of Manly Sailing Racing

We have many opportunites to get you involved in Yacht Racing, whether its Twilights, at Club Level, at major regattas or even offshore.

If you have completed a course with Manly Sailing you can join our Crew Register for free. We will put you in touch with Skippers who are looking for regular crew so you can test your sailing skills and get your competitive edge going.

Twilight Racing

Put your sailing skills to the test by joining us for the Manly Yacht Club Twilight Series. These Friday Evening Races start in October and run every week until the end of March.

It’s a great way to wind down after a hard working week.  Enjoy the glory of Sydney Harbour on a balmy evening then join other crews back at the Yacht Club for drinks, food and the prerequisite tall tale telling.

$50 per person per race or $225 for 5 races.

Click on the Book Now button on the top right of any page to book in.



Manly Sailing attends most major regattas in Australia and offer individual crew places to those who want to get that Regatta Experience.

The Manly Sailing Crew goes to these regattas with one aim in mind – to have as much fun as possible, both on and off the water.  Crew who have joined us in recent years still talk about their experiences and in fact a lot of them come back with us each year.

Hamilton Island Race Week 

The regatta to be seen at. It’s always a big show with all the premier yachts and crews in Australia competing alongside regular sailors.

Fantastic racing, a huge social scene and the opportunity to be part of Australias Premier Regatta – whats not to like. This year will be the fifth year in a row we have entered Eureka II and have never failed to come away without at least one trophy – will it be an overall one this year?
