RYCT OTB is run by a group of volunteer parents and supported by the facilities of the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania. Our wonderful main clubhouse is warm and inviting with superb facilities, the OTB Centre to the north of the clubhouse provide storage for our boats. The Centre was originally built to house the 12ft Cadet Dinghy fleet and the Sharpie class.


Today, the OTB Centre is home to Lasers (full rig, radial and 4.7), Sabots, Optimists, the International 420 and 470, 29er and 49er classes, windsurfers and the super-fast Foiler Moths.

RYCT owns a fleet of training boats, giving sailors an opportunity to try a number of different classes before they need to buy. RYCT is the proud owner of 18 Optimists, six Pacers, one Laser and an International 420. These have been purchased and maintained through the generous donations of our club sponsors.

RYCT OTB provides a number of training and racing options for different classes on Saturdays, beginning in early October. Please see the season calendar for the full list of training and racing dates.
