Sailing / Yacht Club
The Ballaarat Yacht Club is located on the southern foreshore on Lake Wendouree in the centre of Ballart in Victoria, Australia. The club was established in 1877 and has had a continuous history albeit having been affected by droughts. Lake Wendouree is an artificially-created and maintained shallow urban lake with a shoreline of 6.5 kilometres and covers 238 hectares. The lake has an average depth of 1.5 metres and is 2 metres at its deepest. The Ballarat Yacht Club committee has a proud history in regional and State racing. The club is proud of its many champions and juniors who started and honed their skills in the variable winds of Lake Wendouree, who have gone on to glory in the world of yachting.
