About HBYC

Visitors to Hobsons Bay Yacht Club will find our club right in the heart of Williamstown. The club is very close to the shops, entertainment and social life as well as enjoying fantastic views of the city and the West Gate Bridge.

HBYC is only 15 minutes away from the city by car and is close to public transport. Visitor moorings are available on request to the Manager, telephone 9397 6393 beforehand to ensure that a pen is available.

HBYC has an exciting yachting calendar and is very keen to encourage non-sailors to enjoy this sport. The Twilight Series on Wednesday and Thursday evenings goes from October to March and is the time when the community is welcomed to join in on the late afternoon race. The race takes approximately 1 - 2 hours depending on weather conditions.

In the winter we have the very popular Brass Monkey Series where around 80 club boats regularly participate. There are also many trophies to be won as you can see from the calendar. As well as major interclub sailing events, the S80 Association of Victoria hold class races.
