Australian Defence Force Academy

Sailing Club

The ADFA Sailing Club allows officer cadets, midshipmen and fellow Defence members to develop their sailing skills within a relaxed environment. The ADFASC is very diversified in its sailing activities. We currently provide cadets with 4 Lasers, 5 racing Tasars and 10 Envies. The boatshed also provides the cadets with canoeing, kayaking, and rowing facilities. ADFA Sailing Club is an accredited Yachting Australia Discover Sailing Centre and regularly runs courses to introduce beginners to the sport. The club competes in local club races on the lake and competes in a number of events each year including state, national and international competitions. ADFA SC is run entirely by officer cadets and midshipmen, including all instructional, administrative and management duties. In recent years the club has sailed in:

  • The inaugural ADFA Community regatta at Canberra Yacht Club (2014)
  • The ADFA Champion Sailor Laser Regatta (2014)
  • ACT Teams Racing Championships (2014)
  • Inter-Service Yachting Championships (2013)
  • Regular Twilight racing with local sailing clubs
  • Regular training sessions for both team and fleet racing
