Royal Geelong Yacht Club: Beat the Regional Rush

Royal Geelong Yacht Club: Beat the Regional Rush

The Royal Geelong Yacht Club (RGYC) has a proud history and exciting future, with an expanding marina and facilities as the club undertakes the major development – Geelong Waterfront Safe Harbour Precinct (GWSHP) Project ( www.gwshp.com.au ).

As part of this project, RGYC has installed a new floating marina arm, located right in front of the clubhouse, that has provided additional berthing with 29 new floating marina berths.

RGYC can offer berthing for vessels, from 8m up to 20m, with floating marina pens and fixed pile pens available.

RGYC also offer an onsite slipway for vessels up to 15 tonnes and 24/7 access to fuel. Walking in from the marina, Members also have immediate access to shoreside facilities, The Yot café and Member’s Bar and lounge.

Besides the onsite facilities, RGYC is located in the prime position on the Geelong waterfront, being just a very short walking distance to the CBD, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. RGYC is on the gateway to the Great Ocean Road and is the ideal holiday location.

Royal Geelong Yacht Club Wangim Walk

Another major milestone in the progression of the GWSHP project was the opening of Wangim Walk – Geelong’s new $10.1 million, 440m wave attenuator that stretches out over Corio Bay to form one of Australia’s largest on-water walkways.

Not only does Wangim Walk welcome the public for a unique experience to walk on water, the versatile structure also offers increased protection for the marina, creating a safe harbour and being a major drawcard for boat owners. 

With this development comes more opportunity for the club, both on water and on land including attracting major national and international events and allowing visiting and RGYC vessels to tie up on the landmark and explore Geelong’s CBD.

This is a great time to get involved and join the RGYC community.

RGYC currently has marina pens available and encourages boat owners to submit their interest to beat the regional rush and secure a spot.

For more information on marina pens, please contact RGYC on 03 5229 3705 or via [email protected] .

Tower Beach Club

  

Opened in 2019, the Tower Beach Club is a 4300 sq ft indoor/outdoor event venue with 270 degree panoramic views of Mission Bay - the perfect wedding reception venue, private party, or corporate venue. Our panoramic doors allow the event venue to be either fully opened to the outside, or closed up to separate the indoor space from the exterior deck. 

If you're looking for a venue that embodies the Southern California beach vibe, it's hard to find a better spot than the Tower Beach Club. 

 With its open-air bar and massive beachfront patio, the event venue is a quintessential high-end beach club without the high-end price tag. Guests booking the event venue for private events, corporate events, or wedding receptions are welcome to bring their own booze, food, and catering in order to cut costs. Unlike many event venues and wedding reception venues, chairs and tables for 120, as well as 8 high top cocktail tables, are included free of charge with venue rental. 

Our private venue is just as adept at hosting a 30-50 person corporate event or off-site meeting as it is hosting a 200 person wedding reception or private party. With a city parks permit, the adjacent beachfront lawn with palm tree backdrop can be used for wedding ceremonies. 

  Named to The Knot's "Best of Weddings" 2023 

Named "Best Waterfront Wedding Venue" by Here Comes the Guide for 2023/2024.

Why Choose the Tower Beach Club?

Quintessential socal vibe, breathtaking waterfront views.

   4300 square foot Indoor/Outdoor

Waterfront Event Space Venue    

  With views of La Jolla to the North, the setting sun over Mission Beach to the West, and the boating and water activity of Sail Bay to the East, the view is unrivaled.  

(Optional) BYOB Everything

Private events can do their own food and bar (requires a licensed and insured mobile bartending service), or pick their own caterer. No BYOB for individual guests of ticketed concerts or events.
