Sauna Sail 2018CANCELLATION OF SAUNA SAIL 2018 The Latrobe Valley Yacht Club has today received notice from Engie, the owners of the Hazelwood Pondage, stating immediate closure of the waterway. Regrettably this means that, despite advanced preparations, that Sauna Sail 2018 has now been cancelled.
Welcome To The Latrobe Valley Yacht Club
The Latrobe Valley Yacht Club is located on the banks of the Hazelwood Pondage on the Yinnar Road close to the towns of Morwell and Churchill in the Latrobe Valley.
The club celebrated its 50th anniversary since inception last year.
We are unique in that the waters on which we sail is the cooling pondage for the Hazelwood Power Station which means that the water temperature is consistently in the 22-24 degrees Celsius range.
We have a summer and winter sailing program (details can be found by clicking on the sailing program link). Members sail a mix of trailer sailers and off the beach dinghys and catamarans.
Our flagship event is the iconic Sauna Sail which is held on the three days of the Queens Birthday weekend in June.. (further details can be found by clicking on the sauna sail link)
We run sail training programs during the summer season and also Sailability programs (further information can be found by clicking on the Sailability link)
Whilst we are a relatively small club we are a very active and welcoming club. We welcome visitors and new members alike. If you would like further information please feel free to approach one of our members on sailing days or phone our commodore Geoff Conway on 0418318900
