Welcome to the ASCC

The Australian Sailing and Cruising Club is a social boating club for people of Diverse Gender and Sexuality (DGS) in Sydney and across Australia. We welcome boats and boaters of all types – sail, power, dinghy, windsurf, kite, kayak – if it floats, you’re welcome to join in! Rowing and Dragonboating are the exception sports, however both of these are well served by other DGS clubs.

The Club is based in Sydney and organises regular events (approximately monthly) during the year both on the water and the land. Guests and visitors to Sydney are welcome – you don’t have to own a boat to be a member.

Our Social meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month, at the Strand Hotel (99 William St, Darlinghurst), commencing at ~7:30pm. All are welcome. The restaurant is licensed. December is an exception for both date and location, TBA each year.

Note also, that if the weather is good on other weekends, there is a decent chance that some member’s will be taking their boats out for an “unofficial” event, usually planned last minute, once forecasts are available. Once you get to know some boat-owner members, there are good opportunities for more on-water relaxation.
