About Lake Wellington Yacht Club

Home to the iconic Marlay Point Overnight Race, Lake Wellington Yacht Club came into being in 1960 and is a small but active  club with committed, long serving members.

Based at the western end of the magnificent Gippsland Lakes, the club is popular with locals and visitors alike for its unique location on the edge of protected wetlands – as well as the friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The club has produced many champions across a range of classes, most recently in the Hartley 16, Hartley 21, RL24 and Castle 650 classes.

We hope to see you soon!
