Membership & SailPass

Learn to Sail / Kayak

Our club believes that nothing is better than hands on experience!

New sailors start by crewing a boat with an experienced member and gradually they'll learn the ropes to become hardened skippers.

All our members are more than happy to share their knowledge and experience leaving no one behind.

The Lake offers a safe environment to gain skills and our excursions to fellow clubs offer a great opportunity to experience inter-club racing.

Discover Sailing

Every year (~End October), the Lakeside Sailing Club - Pakenham organises a dedicated Discover Sailing Day. During this day, everyone is welcome to join us for free at the Lake for sailing and kayaking. We will provide the boats, kayaks, safety gear and a lot of fun!

Since last year, the Lakeside Sailing Club - Pakenham introduced the Annual Commodore's Cup.  This series is organised at the Lake in Pakenham and allows our members to compete against each other, using similar classed Dinghies. 

On top of the Commodore's Cup , our club often joins inter-club events. Here we can show and  fine tune our racing skills in more challenging environments. Typically these events are packed with competitive spirit, action and fun!
