APYC is the oldest continually operating club in Victoria and was established in 1871.
We have a proud history over 130 years and we are still making history with our contribution to the community. Other information APYC is a safe and convenient place to learn to sail and participate in regular competition – all this in the heart of the city.

Albert Park Yacht Club offers a safe and convenient place to sail year round in the heart of the city. Add to this a great social calendar that includes some of the best musician’s in the country (thanks to Cliff Ellery and Harmony Row) and you’ve got a pretty good deal!
During the 1990s the club started running its training courses for dinghy sailors as well as hosting the Solo state titles and the Victorian Institute of Sport Olympic Athlete Program for Sailing. Over the years it seemed that APYC has become the unofficial protector of the lake; lobbying against various environmental threats ranging from dredging in 1876 to a bowling alley in 1962 through to constructing a bridge to the island and building a 5 storey restaurant with a carpark for 250 cars and most recently the redirecting of rainfall runoff.
All APYC members realise they are on public land and the Lake belongs to everyone, so everyone is welcome to come and share all of it. Our club takes great pride in making it possible to get the best of all there is to offer.
