ANU Sailing Club

The Australian National University Sailing Club (ANUSC) sails on Lake Burley Griffin from our boatshed in Yarralumla Bay, Yarralumla. Our boatshed has full shower and toilet facilities as well as a clubroom, all within bike riding distance of the ANU campus.

The club owns a range of Lasers, Pacers, Tasars, Sharpies and Windsurfers. This variety allows members to sail single handed or in crews of 2 or 3. The boats are divided into general use and racing boats. Most boats are general use boats available to all members after they have shown that they can safely rig and handle them through an on-water evaluation. Racing boats are restricted for experienced sailors to train and to compete.

The ANU Sailing Club runs beginners’ and windsurfing training courses. The beginners’ courses are designed for those with no prior experience and are a great opportunity to experience the joys of sailing. Courses run during Semester 1 and 2 starting in February, dependent upon the number of applicants, and run over the course of a weekend and two weekday evenings. Club members can compete in Tuesday twilight racing run through the YMCA Sailing Club. Racing is also run on Saturdays but this requires joining the YMCA Sailing Club through our reduced fees deal. The club also sends a team to the Australian University Games as well as competing in various local regattas in Canberra and Batemans Bay. The ANU Sailing Club is a great community and we encourage anyone to join us.
