Welcome to the Urunga Sail Training Club


At the Urunga Sail Training Club you can discover sailing no matter what your ability. We are the only  Australian Sailing certified Small Boat Sailing School on the NSW North Coast between Port Macquarie and Yamba teaching AS Start Sailing 1 & 2 in small boats, catamarans and ACCESS dinghys on the Kalang and Bellinger Rivers at URUNGA (20kms south of Coffs Harbour).
The USTC is a Family orientated Club catering for all ages and abilities. Our Australian Sailing qualified instructors can teach you on the safe waters of the Kalang and Bellinger Rivers. You don’t even have to own a boat. The Urunga Sail Training Club has its own training boats and one of the benefits of membership to the Club is that you get to use them when they are not being used for teaching.

Our fully accessible facilities include: Off street Parking, Toilets and Change Facilities for persons with disabilities.

No age is too young or old to be involved in the clubs activities as they are not all on the water including our monthly “Kid Friendly Family Full Moon BBQ’s” starting at 5:30pm so you can get the kids to bed at a reasonable hour. Yes, we even have a high chair and change table so come and join the fun. See our Events page for details and dates of the next BBQ.

Birthday-2017

April 29 Clubs 7th Birthday Bash

We would like to invite you to our next Saturday Night BBQ on 29 April 2017.

To make our club more accessible to more people we have moved our Family Friendly BBQs to Saturday evening starting at about 5:30pm and finishing when you have had enough or need to go elsewhere. Please remember that our BBQs are “Kid Friendly” and “Vege Friendly” as we have 2 BBQs. One is Vege Only.

What to bring?

Bring what you like to eat and a bit extra to share/taste with others as we love our food.

This is not a “Dry” BBQ but BYO and be mindful of our children please.

We do have soft drinks for sale at the club.

So, bring your family, friends and Food and introduce them to the crowd you are now “Floating around with” and us to the food you eat.

RSVP to this message would be great.

Thanks. Team USTC.
