Sailing Club

The ADFA Sailing Club allows Midshipmen, Officer Cadets and fellow Defence members to develop their sailing skills within a relaxed environment. The ADFASC is very diversified in its sailing and other leisure activities. We currently provide cadets with 3 Lasers, 5 racing Tasars, 15 Envies, and our recently acquired Hunter 25 yacht. The boatshed also provides the cadets with canoeing, kayaking, and rowing facilities.

Classes sailed:

  • Envy
  • Laser (Olympic Class)
  • Tasar (Recognised Class)
  • Hunter 25


In 2006 ADFA was well represented in the Inter-Service Competition with three cadets in the winning Navy team. Locally, ADFASC is the home to the Navy Regatta held in May of each year. This regatta forms part of the Navy week celebrations and allows cadets to sail in the main basin on Lake Griffin.
