RYCV was founded as the Port Phillip Yacht Club in May 1853 and remains one of the oldest yacht clubs in Australia. Situated in Williamstown, Victoria just 13km away from Melbourne the club enjoys stunning views of the city skyline and is steeped in decades of yachting history and tradition.
Today RYCV has around 900 members and over 300 yachts on the register making it an ideal home for sailors of all levels of experience. Sailors can enjoy reliable and steady breezes with little or no current - a perfect stretch of water for club sailing, or state, national and international regattas.
RYCV is well connected by road, rail and sea and our clubhouse facilities include a large dining room, bar, outdoor decking and lawn area. The dining room is open for dinner seven days a week and for breakfast on the weekends. The atmosphere and location of the Club makes it an ideal venue for weddings and functions.
