About our community
Manly Yacht Club is home to a number of water sport and community based organisations that we are proud to partner with for the benefit of their members, our members and the wider community.
Manly Diggers Swimming Club
The club is a family friendly group with a long history surrounding the succession of ocean pools at East Esplanade. This rich tradition is reflected in our clubrooms which are still based at Manly Yacht Club.
Sailability Manly is a part of Sailability NSW (Inc), which in turn is part of the worldwide Sailability organisation.
Their principal aim is to facilitate sailing for people with disabilities, on what is acknowledged as one of the most spectacular waterways in the world. They sail from Manly Yacht Club, East Esplanade, Manly, and use the expanses of Manly Cove and North Harbour, part of magnificent Sydney Harbour.
Manly Sailing have lots of sailing courses for kids and adults at our Sailing School as well as Corporate Team Building Events and Sailing Trips on Sydney Harbour. They also offer private kayak hire and kayak tours.
Anyone that completes their Start Crewing Course receives a 20% off their 1st year of membership with Manly Yacht Club.
Northern Beaches Dragon Boat Club
The Northern Beaches Dragon Boat Club (NBDBC) was formed in 1997 and trains in the beautiful surroundings of Manly Cove.
The club caters for all ages and fitness levels. We support and motivate our paddlers to reach their goals.
NBDBC has competed with great success across the years in the racing divisions of Mixed, Womens, Mens, Open and Masters.
Manly Community Forum
MCF are locals who love Manly and care deeply about our local community. They are entirely volunteer based and non-partisan. Their monthly meetings are on the third Monday of every month at Manly Yacht Club. Come to their monthly meetings and join in the discussion, raise an issue, inspire others, or simply get to know our neighbours – everyone’s welcome.
