Dobson Yacht Club stands on the western shore of South Arm, directly opposite the Sydney downtown area. Its location on the chart (4266) is shown as Dobsons Point, formerly known as Shingle Point. The Club is justly proud of its facilities, which are the finest and most extensive in Sydney Harbour. With its harbourside lawn and beautiful vista of the Sydney waterfront, it is a major social centre on the Westmount shore of the harbour.

Our Club’s mission is to provide first-class boating facilities for members and visiting cruisers, and to promote the pastime of sailing and power boating in a friendly, family-oriented atmosphere. We welcome nonmembers to be our guests and to enjoy our facilities and to participate in the various activities that take place at the Club.

If you’re an off-island sailor wishing to spend more than one season cruising Cape Breton and Atlantic Canada, Dobson Yacht Club is your home-away-from-home.

In addition to our boating services we also offer pub nights for the whole family. Our kitchen is open Wednesday – Thursday from 4-7pm for wing night as well as every Friday 5-9pm for our After Work Parties! We have a variety of bands and acts every Friday until midnight and there is absolutely no cover charge. Minors are welcome until 9pm and we have high chairs available for your convenience. The bar is open for beverage service 7 days a week at 12 noon until 11pm, except on Fridays and special events where the bar remains open until midnight or later. Here at the Dobson we strive to offer our guests a variety of quality menu items and amazing service in a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere. We hope you’ll join us!
