Our club has two sites, Shore House and Lobster Quay, each with a club building, about 50 metres apart. Shore House clubhouse has fabulous views of the water borne activities and houses our administration and social facilities. Directly opposite Shore House is our jetty with mooring facilities and the club race box. Lobster Quay clubhouse provides showers, changing and training facilities and an all states of the tide launching facility.

The success of WSC is due to its balanced membership and activities, with members cruising and racing in boats from dinghies to the largest blue water yachts.

With over 1300 members nearly all areas of marine expertise are represented within the Club which effectively means that help and advice is always readily available.
