The Club:

The Stirling Marblehead Yacht Racing Club is based in Stirling, South Australia some 20km east of Adelaide in the Adelaide Hills.

The Lake is simply beautiful. With a backdrop of regenerated forest, nature reflected brightly in its glassy waters and a flotilla of ducks ever present, it's hard to believe this secluded and idyllic spot is less than a minute's drive from Stirling's main street.


The Club has been sailing since its inception by Laurie Rees in 1993 and only races the Marblehead "M" Class and has around 16 members at present.

Sailing is all year round every Wednesday for official races and infrequently on Sunday mornings.

Visitors are welcome to watch the yachts in action - members seem only too happy to let interested onlookers share their love of sailing by offering the controls.

Hot Weather Policy:

Sailing will be cancelled on days of Extreme and Catastrophic Fire Danger as defined by the ~5:00 pm forecast on the BOM and CFS sites on the preceding day,  The basis for this policy is the one way road leading to the lake and the Adelaide Hills Council restriction on the use of Wooorabinda on those days.
