Batemans Bay Sailing Club has an exciting programme for both racing and cruising enthusiasts.
The Clubhouse and boat storage facilities are situated at Hanging Rock Place, Batemans Bay which is used as a base for its off the beach activities. Its keel boat activities are focused at the newly developed Batemans Bay Marina, Beach Road, Batemans Bay.
The majority of the Club’s fleet of keel boats are regularly sailed in the Club’s Bay Cup and Coastal series.
The main keel boat events include:
the Bay Cup Series – Two Divisions (Cat 7). Sailing to all points of Batemans Bay.
the Coastal Cup Series for Div 1 (Cat 4) yachts – in the Tasman Sea from as far South as Moruya to as far North as Durras.
the Tollgate Classic Series for Div 2 (Cat 7) yachts within the waters of Batemans Bay
the Ladies Skippers/Crew members’ race, and
the Winter Series of competitive and social races on Saturdays and Sundays running from May through to August – Champagne sailing!.
A major event on the keel boat calendar is The South Coast Regatta – a family regatta over two days in early January. During the holiday season boats from the club also make the trip to Jervis Bay to participate in races hosted by the Jervis Bay Sailing Club.
Off the Beach
The off-the-beach activities are mainly at Tuross Head Coila Lake. In addition, there is:
the ANZAC Day Weekend Regatta when Batemans Bay Sailing Club hosts two days of races for multiple classes of off-the-beach and trailable yachts held on the waters of Batemans Bay. This regatta attracts competitive sailors, some of whom are vying for state and national titles. It’s a real festival of sail.
