Perhaps a de-brief at the adjacent Cruising Yacht Club in Rushcutters Bay
For extended charters the yachts can be sailed around Pittwater and the Hawkesbury River. One of our Beneteau First 40's is in offshore survey so can be sailed up the coast to Pittwater and the Hawkesbury or Port Stephens. Why join a club or boat share arrangement and be stuck with capital and ongoing maintenance costs when you can charter a boat for a fraction of the cost? You are welcome to visit our marina to view fleet.
Enquire about yacht hire for Boxing Day, see the start of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia's most famous race, the Sydney to Hobart race, or charter a yacht for New Year's Eve on Sydney Harbour to get a front row seat to the fabulous fireworks display. Other special days on the harbour are Australia Day and Easter weekend chartering. We also charter our sailing boats with a skipper for private and corporate sailing, or industry sailing days.
