Spotlight on Governor’s Patronage – 100 years of Fremantle Sailing Club

This year Fremantle Sailing Club is celebrating their 100th year as a club with a strong history in the City of Fremantle.

Fremantle Sailing Club is a focal point for world class sailing and a community dedicated to the ocean, with more than 3,000 members and 11 different sections.


Competitive sailing commenced in Fremantle in 1872 with a series of annual regattas culminating in the formation of the first Fremantle Yacht Club in 1885.

There have in fact been three “Fremantle Sailing Clubs” over the past 100 years or more. This year’s 100th anniversary recognises the formation of the Club in 1920, after a series of clubs before it were formed and then disbanded.
