About The Bay Sailing Centre

The Bay Sailing Centre, formerly known as Port Stephens Sailing and Aquatic Club, has a 40-year history of hosting local dinghy sailing as well as major world, national and state championships.

Situated on the shores of Salamander Bay, it faces east towards the majestic Port Stephens headlands and a body of water that is widely regarded as offering one of the best sailboat racing tracks in Australia.
