Welcome. This section of the site is dedicated to the Sailing aspect of the Townsville Yacht Club.

brief history

The Townsville Cruising Yacht Club (TCYC) was established in approximately 1967. In the early 1980's the Townsville Cruising Yacht Club started operating from the Townsville Motor Boat Club (TMBC). In 1999 the TCYC was incorporated into the TMBC and collectively we are known as the Townsville Yacht Club (TYC). The goal and purpose of the club is to promote and encourage yachting on a competitive and social basis.

Our signature event is the Bluewater Classic Regatta held over the Easter long weekend. This race occurs offshore in the waters and islands around Magnetic Island and Townsville.

The TYC also hosts a regular racing calendar for yachts each year. Competition for the Commodore's Cup takes place between late February and late October and consists of a combination of offshore and inshore racing.

A regular social Twilight Sail is conducted each Wednesday evening. A short pursuit style sail on the waters of Cleveland Bay is followed by prize giving, socialising, and raffles at the TYC.
