Club information The Club was founded in 1909. Fiona Taylor and Jenni Lidgett learnt to sail at Davey's Bay Yacht Club. Former Commodores Nigel Peck and Athol Lidgett and their families are Club stalwarts.
Other information Davey's Bay Yacht Club faces north on Port Phillip Bay with a vista of Melbourne. Rigging and launching boats is in the lee of the prevailing south-west winds. A great family club - the jewell of the Bay!
