Conditions last year were fantastic for both sailing and sightseeing. The wind so far this season has provided members with some excellent racing as can be seen in the photos.

The greens at the club are a great place for the whole family to watch the racing, with many other vantage points around the Lake. There are numerous tourist attractions as well as the Civic Shopping centre nearby, great for all the non-sailors.

Excellent accommodation packages are available through the Diplomat Hotel in Kingston, with a 15% discount to CYC members and regatta entrants. Be sure to book via the Canberra Yacht Club home page to claim your discount.

We look forward to seeing you in the nation’s capital with the family to enjoy the fantastic spring weather and some great racing for the ACT Capital Insurance Brokers Dinghy Championships.
