Dinghy Sailing at East Fremantle Yacht Club is a fun, exciting and the perfect weekend social activity! Members of the club get to mix with like-minded sailors. Dinghy sailing is suitable to all levels of skill and ability.

Spend a glorious day on the water sailing, and then unwind in the comfort of the newly refurbished clubhouse with a drink or two.

Beginners can start with dinghy sailing. It is an ideal way for young families to enjoy the water responsibly. If you want to improve your sailing skills, then we run Adult Dinghy Sailing Courses and a racing programme that you can register for. We welcome both juniors and adults.

Our Program of events and other forms and documents can be found and downloaded from the Club Documents page.

Have you often thought about spending on occasional Sunday navigating a sailboat on the Swan River? You can now join East Fremantle Yacht Club and learn how to sail these larger boats with experienced sailors.

East Fremantle Yacht Club’s extensive fleet of Keelboats ensure that we can accommodate large numbers so nobody is left out for this popular sailing sport. You can race, or just enjoy some social cruising in fantastic surroundings.

We also take part in a number of coastal and offshore events each year. East Fremantle Yacht Club members regularly represent the club at these events. To participate, join us at the club or simply make an enquiry.

Our Program for the new season and other forms and documents can be found and downloaded from our Club Documents page.

The Power Section at East Fremantle Yacht Club embraces the relaxed and fun-loving group of members whose preferred method of getting about on the water is by power boat or power yacht.

The group’s interests are served by a Power Yacht Committee, whose goal is to promote improved skills in handling and all aspects of power boats and power yachting.

With this goal in mind, the club conducts a program of events incorporating power yachting throughout the year in which members can participate.

These events include fishing trips, weekends away, picnics, river cruises, raft-ups and rallies – sometimes with members of other clubs. There are even photographic competitions trying to capture the perfect shot of one of those spectacular sunsets for which Western Australia is renowned. In short, it’s a whole load of fun.

All power boating events at East Fremantle Yacht Club are a great opportunity to meet other power yacht owners and have a day outdoors with family and friends.

With the Swan River, a magnificent stretch of coastline bordered by the Indian Ocean and some idyllic island retreats all on the doorstep, the club is the perfect location from which to explore what is a wonderful area for those with access to the water, even more so in the company of friends.

East Fremantle Yacht Club is a registered Australian Sailing Training Centre and for those looking for an introduction into the sport or to further their knowledge, we can offer a range of training courses conducted by qualified, knowledgeable and experienced instructors. Accredited courses such as the Recreational Skipper’s Ticket and the National Power Boat Handling Course are run at the club .

East Fremantle Yacht Club is proud to be the home of Perth’s premier dragon boat club, the Cockburn Dragon Boat Club, or ‘Blades’ as it is affectionately known.

Dragon boating is a fun, social sport catering for different levels of fitness and ability. If you are interested in training hard, being an integral part of a team and winning, then become a part of the club’s open, women or mixed teams.

There are some serious paddlers among the Cockburn Dragon Boat Club’s ranks. Four of the club’s members represented Australia in the World Dragon Boat Championships held in Kunming, China, in October 2017 and enjoyed no little success, returning home with a staggering haul of 30 medals between them!

You do not, however, have to be a potential world champion to get involved. If you are more interested in just having a fun paddle, with less intense training demands, Wednesday night social paddling may be more to your liking.

Cockburn Dragon Boat Club offers the following fantastic opportunities to get fit and enjoy a great social life:

  • Regular training both competitively and socially
  • Competition regattas throughout Western Australia, Australia and the world
  • State team selection training
  • Team building for businesses, schools, sporting teams etc.
  • Corporate events with all training and equipment provided
  • Great social and fitness for members and their families

Training sessions are held on Sundays at 8am, Tuesdays at 6pm and Thursdays at 6pm. All ages from 12-70 and all levels of fitness are catered for. Social paddling takes place on Wednesdays at 6pm.
