Sailing on the Swan River

Royal Perth Yacht Club offers sailing opportunities for people of all ages.

No matter your level of experience, we provide a relaxed, family friendly and fun environment to learn and develop your sailing skills!

And the best part is, you don’t need your own boat to get involved.

With two Clubhouse locations in one of the best sailing cities in the world, there is a style of sailing to suit everyone.

When can you sail at RPYC?

Here at RPYC, we provide year-round opportunities to get out on the water!

The Summer Sailing Season runs from October through to April. Our marina and Club grounds come alive with a hive of activity.

From crews meeting and getting ready for Saturday afternoon Keelboat Racing to the Dinghy Division preparing for training and racing on a Sunday, something is always happening at RPYC.

Seasonal Activities

Saturday Summer Series

Wednesday Series

Night Series

Twilight Cruising

Dinghy Training



If your weekends are busy with other commitments, we offer week-day sailing too. Wednesday afternoon sailing is held year-round and always attracts a big fleet and plenty of tall tales in the bar afterwards.

Twilight sailing in the summer is a beautiful way to ease into the weekend. A cruise on the Swan River followed by a drink at the Catalina Bar & Alfresco Area is a great way to involve your family, friends and work colleagues in your passion for sailing.

Even when the summer is over, plenty of racing and training opportunities during the winter months will keep you involved.

Royal Perth Yacht Club enjoys a close relationship with Sailability WA, an organisation which provides opportunities for people with disabilities, regardless of their ability, mobility or circumstances to engage in sailing. For more information on Sailability WA, please click here.

The range of sailing activities and training opportunities at RPYC mean that there really is something for everyone. From the busy professional with time for an occasional sail or the family looking for a fun and inclusive weekend activity, we’ve got you covered.
