Club Facilities

The Club has a modern and recently extended and refurbished Clubhouse, offering a licensed bar, lounge, shower, dining and barbecue facilities. Its dining room caters for up to 70 people. The GRYC is one of only three licensed clubs in South Australia which is permitted to sell liquor for consumption away from its premises. This facility is much appreciated by members stocking their boats for lengthy cruises.
Internet access in the Clubhouse enables members and visitors to obtain the latest weather charts, forecasts, and satellite imagery.
While staffed, the Clubhouse maintains a listening watch on VHF and 27Mhz radios. Its call-sign is VH5GR (G Base). Almost the whole of the Lower Murray and Coorong area is covered by the Telstra mobile telephone service. Optus and Vodafone are less reliable outside of Goolwa.
The Club's marina accommodates 106 boats of up to 12 metres in length. Power and water are connected, and berths may be leased or rented. The marina provides 180 metres of jetty space for casual mooring. Twelve pens have been reserved for visiting boats.
An excellent boat ramp allows the launching or retrieving of two vessels simultaneously in almost all weathers.


Vistors from other yacht clubs and sailing clubs are welcome to use the Club's facilities. They are also welcome to participate in all of the Club’s racing, cruising and social events. On arrival at the GRYC contact should be made with either the Club Manager or one of the Committee members for advice and assistance.
