Middle Harbour Yacht Club, the 'Friendly Club', is located on the shores of picturesque Middle Harbour and is the ideal location for launching any aquatic activity on beautiful Sydney Harbour, arguably the best harbour in the world.

Middle Harbour invites visitors to enjoy our splendid facilities. Enjoy the view of our beautiful sandy beach whilst casually dining, savouring our fabulous coffee whilst viewing the on-water fun. It is not uncommon to view wildlife in the marina - seals, dolphins, pelicans, fish and even whales!

Middle Harbour Yacht Club has an enviable range of facilities to enjoy from the state-of-the-art marina, keelboat sailing, dinghy sailing and youth sailing. The key to the club is our helpful staff, volunteers, and members who will guide guests from senior to junior experienced to novice into the appropriate on-water sailing activity.

Middle Harbour Yacht Club was selected as the home of the Australian Sailing Team and routinely hosts elite sailors for world standard regattas. The opportunity for a young sailor to meet their sailing heroes is an inspiration for many.

The club’s friendly nature is unique and treasured. We focus on all our members who enjoy functions, restaurants, comraderie, sailing, cruising, family activities and much, much more. We welcome a visit from overseas or local, active or social, individuals or families - come and discover Sydney's hidden secret. 

Membership for Middle Harbour Yacht Club is open. The following membership subscription fees apply from September - August annually.

Please contact our Membership Coordinator on 02 9969 1244 for more information.

Reciprocal Clubs

MHYC has established reciprocal rights and invitations to visit with many Australian and overseas clubs. Unfortunately, the complete list was destroyed in a large fire at the Club in 2015 and we are continuing to try and re-establish this list. If you have any additions, please send details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Reciprocal rights mean that any financial member of MHYC is invited to make use of the facilities of any of those clubs with whom we have negotiated such rights. It also means that members of those same clubs have similar rights to use our facilities. Other clubs have issued an invitation to visit their club and MHYC can supply a letter of introduction if so required.
