Port Dalrymple Yacht Club

Founded in 1952 in Northern Tasmania, located on the banks of ‘Kanamaluka’, the beautiful Tamar River, is the Port Dalrymple Yacht Club (PDYC). Club facilities include one of the few haul out facilities on the Tamar estuary where you can sail a wide range of yachts, boats and dinghies.

PDYC is a predominantly volunteer run club with a strong all hands-on deck approach from its members. Built from the ground up, the hard work and dedication of their volunteers has led them to where they are today. Read more about PDYC.
