Register as crew. Members are encouraged to use this crew declaration system which opens the day before a race. To register on “crew declaration” for the first time, you will need your Australian Sailing Number and to establish your own personal password. If unsure ask Ian Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org or Frank McMahon at email@example.com. (Non-members please contact club Captain and / or the skipper wanting you to crew, and first use the Sail Pass system to obtain temporary membership – see further below on this page).
Information relevant to racing is to be found in the following links.

As a rule, keelboat racing happens every Saturday in summer and on a few Sundays in winter. Visitors are welcome to crew provided they register for temporary membership and contact the Club Captain or a boat skipper in advance. First time is free, subsequently $15 per day. The fleet includes Couta boats, small to medium keelboats and a couple of 40 foot ocean racing yachts. Members’ vessels are moored either in pens within the Queenscliff marina or off the Queenscliff Cruising Yacht Club – on swing moorings or in pile moorings. For planned race dates, check for updates on the Club’s Calendar of events. And skippers who might wish to race please register your vessel (once to cover the whole year) as follows.
Registration of vessels intending to race.
This is a “once only” process to cover the whole sailing season, for a boat. You will need a completed category 5 or category 7 safety declaration, a copy of your vessel’s insurance certificate, and your login information for Australian Sailing. Then click here for the online registration form.
Practice in the Racing Rules and in interpreting navigation lights
can be found in the form of quiz or practice in the links page.
