Off The Beach (OTB) is the dinghy sailing section of the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. It is run by a group of volunteers, parents and is supported by the staff and facilities of the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. OTB offers a safe and active environment for juniors, youth and adults to learn sailing in a variety of boats.
OTB includes all smaller sailboats that can launch off a ramp or beach including Opti's, Cadets, Pacers, Contenders, Tasars, 29ers, 49ers and Lasers, Fireballs, Impulse and OK dinghies. Throughout the Summer Season (October - April) there is junior, youth and mixed classes aggregate racing every Saturday. Winter racing is on every 2 to 3 weeks (June to August).
If you are sailing on your own boat at the Club, storage and lockers are available on application. We welcome all newcomers and RGYC Members to participate in sailing and social activities year round. For further information please contact RGYC on 5229 3705
