Dinghy sailing is one of the more popular activities here at East Fremantle Yacht Club, especially with juniors. Kids interested in learning can come to our Junior Sail Training Programmes during the Summer, and it’s a perfect environment for sailors of all ages to progress. Because we’re a family club, parents of the junior classes often volunteer and help out.
Keen to get racing? Every Saturday during the season you’ll see us out on the water, and we also have our own Winter Series during off season. Really keen sailors can take their sailing to the next level: We take part in inter-club, state level and national level sailing events.
If you want to learn sailing, or just continue your sailing and enjoy the family atmosphere, contact the on water events coordinator
EFYC 100 Club – Youth Sailing Foundation
The 100 Club was formed in 1993 by a small group of yacht club members to raise funds, with the objective of promoting the sport of dinghy sailing by providing grants to East Fremantle Yacht Club sailors under the age of 21.
Members of the 100 Club make an annual donation of $100 to the Foundation (hence the term 100 Club) and receive a special key tag acknowledging their involvement. Membership of the Foundation is not restricted to East Fremantle Yacht Club members.
The Foundation holds several fund-raising events each year including popular luncheons with high profile speakers.
