Cleveland Yacht Club


Welcome to Cleveland Yacht Club

Established in 1904 our not-for-profit club provides direct access to the beautiful waters of Moreton Bay for all off-the-beach sailing classes and provides significant physical and mental health benefits to our community of members, volunteers & visitors as well as developing and honing their sailing and racing skills.

As well as hosting the iconic Peel Island Marathon open to all sailing classes around Easter each year, we race every Sunday from around September to April (Summer Season) and around every second Sunday from around May to August with short breaks between seasons and over Christmas.  Additionally, we provide individualised training for aspiring youth and adult sailors in our 2-3 person dinghys as well as opportunities to progress onto high performance racing catamarans.

We welcome Social Sailors, Competitors, Aspiring Sailors and Social Visitors alike to our family friendly club.


New Members and Visiting Racers

Our Club welcomes all new members whether you're an experienced sailor, a beginner or just like messing around with sailboats and provides you the opportunity to hang-out with a great bunch of people during our racing / social / training days or destination sails and gain access to our wonderful facilities and safety vessels!  We also run annual awards nights and Christmas parties.  As an Australian Sailing affiliated club, our members are provided a resonably priced pathway to racing at regattas across Australia as well as Australian Sailing membership and personal liability insurance. 

Members of other Australian Sailing affiliated clubs can sail and experience the benefits of our club for just $20 (keep an eye on our Club Calendar).

Social Sailing and Learning to Sail

Do you have a sailboat gathering dust at home? Sick of rigging on asphalt and concrete carparks? Sick of competing for space with power boats? CLEVELAND YACHT CLUB IS FOR YOU!

What is on offer?  - Access direct to the beautiful waters of Moreton Bay with supervision from both land and sea to ensure that in the event of a gear or crew failure ( we all know skippers never err) a safety boat and qualified crew will rush to your aid to ensure your safety and provide assistance should you require help in righting your craft, making temporary repairs, attending to any minor injuries or providing a tow back to the Club.

Alternatively, if you know nothing about sailing, still get confused between your port and starboard or the last time you sailed was when you were a kid, then we offer individualised training for youths and adults for $80 on Sunday mornings, including boat hire and joining in the racing afterwards if you like. Find out more including how to register at our Learn to Sail information page.


Storage and facilities are available for paddler members of all varieties with the core group paddling surf skis from the club on specific Saturdays and ad-hoc during the week.  Refer to the Club Calendar for specific dates.

If you want to improve your paddling skills and overall fitness individually or in a group environment then this is the group for you.
