Wallerawang Sailing Club

We encourage people of all ages to sail by offering free “sailing experiences” to anyone who comes to Lake Wallace (off the Great Western Highway at Wallerawang Power Station) on a Sunday.

We sail regularly each Sunday and hold two ten week series of informal races in spring and summer school terms and a regatta on the second weekend of November. The VSC handicap system is used and can handle most catamarans, sailing & racing dinghies and sailboards. The races usually last about 2 hours.
