CYCA Heritage

The CYCA was established in 1944 when some keen sailors started meeting informally in a photographic studio in Sydney. They soon acquired a boatshed in Rushcutters Bay and the rest, as they say, is history.  

Over the years the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia has become Australia's leading exponent of ocean racing and cruising, and sea safety.

In 1945 a planned cruise to Hobart quickly turned into a race and the famous Sydney Hobart Yacht Race was born.  The race captured the imagination of the Australian public and it soon developed into an international yachting classic, attracting competitors from around the world.
