Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club

Goolwa, South Australia

[Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club]
by Ivan Sache, 7 September 2003

The Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club was formed as the “Goolwa Regatta Club” some time prior to August 1854, and less than 18 years after European settlement of the then Province of South Australia. The Goolwa Regatta fell into steady decline in the years following the Second World War, but the Club was revived and renamed the Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club in 1969 in order to cater for the booming interest in sailing in the area.

As its name implies, the Club is located in the historic river-port of Goolwa, near the mouth of the River Murray. The Murray-Darling river system is Australia’s longest, stretching 2,589 kilometres (1,609 miles). The name of the town comes from the local Aboriginal word for "elbow", which describes the course of the River Murray in the area as it makes an almost 180 degree turn before running out to sea. The GRYC’s on-water activities take place on the River Murray, the two large Lower Murray lakes (Lake Alexandrina and Lake Albert) and the area known as the Coorong. The Coorong is a unique lagoon abundant in fish and bird life, and includes breeding areas for pelicans and 200 other species of birds. It is about 145 kilometres (90 miles) long, but only 3 kilometres (2 miles) wide, and is separated from the sea by a band of sand hills. A walk of about 1 kilometre (0.62 miles) through these sand hills leads to the spectacular Ninety Mile Beach. The area is part of the Coorong National Park, which has been recognised as a wetland of international significance.

The burgee of the GRYC is blue with a yellow cross. A white disc charged with a blue pelican is placed in the canton.
