SoPYC also runs a Sailability program and radio-controlled yacht racing.

Our sailors enjoy a wide diversity of yachting, both power and sail, with a very social cruising section for more relaxed occasions. Time trialling power yacht fleets are the largest on the river, and the fleet welcomes and accommodates the inexperienced and expert alike.

The next generation of sailing stars are being trained in our Sailing Academy, which offers an extensive range of training courses conducted by a fully qualified and talented team of instructors.

The Yacht Club caters for its members with an exclusive members’ dining and bar area. The Club is the perfect venue for any occasion; from weddings to Christmas parties, seminars and school formals. The venue incorporates the outdoor lawns and the beautifully styled Promenade and Beachside marquees.

Come and discover why we believe South of Perth Yacht Club is one of the finest yacht clubs, not only on the Swan River but in the whole of the state. We look forward to seeing you soon.
