Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club (SSCBC) is located at the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula and is easily accessible from Melbourne.
Couta Boats are our Club’s signature fleet. There is a long and interesting history about how we, as a Club, have come to celebrate the Couta Boat. As historical fishing boats, now raced most weekends, Couta Boats are an integral part of our Club, our sponsor relationships, and most importantly, our culture.
Awarded the 2015/16 Australian and Victorian Yacht Club of the Year, SSCBC enjoys a passionate and friendly, family based membership with large and competitive fleets of off-the-beach dinghies, catamarans, couta boats and keelboats.
Our Clubhouse, sandy beaches, expansive lawns, superb sailing conditions and first class dining facilities provide an opportunity for members and their guests to relish in some recreation time at Sorrento.
With prevailing offshore sea breezes, flat water and ideal sailing conditions, Sorrento is ideal for all dinghies, sailboards and off the beach boats.
The Club has hosted many successful national and international regattas in recent years, including:
- 2015 World Moth Championships
