Royal Brighton Yacht Club is one of Australia’s premier yacht clubs, offering a wide range of sailing events and activites year-round, including junior and youth off-the-beach sailing and training, world-class Etchells and Dragons one design racing, keelboat racing and cruising.

Our modern marina offers berthing for sailing and motor yachts up to 60ft in length. Royal Brighton Yacht Club was recently awarded Victorian Yacht Club of the Year and is one of Melbourne’s favourite venues to enjoy Port Phillip Bay’s incredible views.

The Olympic Restaurant and Bar is open to the public every day serving breakfast and lunch Monday to Sunday and dinner Wednesday to Sunday. During summer, there is live entertainment on hand every Friday evening on our spacious beach facing deck in the form of ‘Fabulous Fridays’. Offering great live music, champagne and oysters, and of course, the beautiful Brighton sunset.

Upstairs is our Members’ Bar as well as our brilliant Bayview room which offers stunning views of Port Philip Bay and is available for private functions and events, such as weddings, christenings and corporate conferences.
