The Balmain Sailing Club is a friendly, inclusive sailing club with regular racing, cruising and a sailing school for children & adults. The emphasis is on fun and friendly competition in a beautiful waterfront location.
Located in Balmain, directly opposite historic Cockatoo Island, the Balmain Sailing Club sits on the southern shore of the Parramatta River in Sydney Harbour. It's a short sail to the world famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. We regularly race around some of Sydney Harbours most pictureque islands - Cockatoo, Goat, Snapper & Spectacle Islands.
The BSC has a proud history dating back to the 1850's and a close association with Sydney's maritime and working harbour traditions.
If you want to race competitively, go cruising, or learn to sail -- we invite you to visit the Balmain Sailing Club and hopefully you'll become a member.
2013 Balmain Regatta
Don't forget to tag yourself, and help us out by naming boats, skippers and friends!
What a great day of sailing we had at the 2013 Balmain Regatta. 130+ boats, with many more spectators following the fleet. A delayed start with some fickle wind - then it started to fill in very nicely and sailing got underway. From 12 Metres, Modern go fast yachts to Classics - the Balmain Regatta lived up to its traditions - a fun day down the river at the Balmain Sailing Club. The party started just before the waterman's race with The Cope Street Parade, and music spilled out around the sailing club and all the locals turned up.
Sailing, music, food and other refreshments - The Balmain Regatta celebrates Sydney's Maritime traditions with a wonderful inner west twist. If you missed it come next year it's last Sunday in October.
Happy Sailing and thanks for coming!
