As a Yacht Club, we are extremely focused on promoting sailing, especially for the youth and physically handicapped through adaptive sailing support, as well as safety on the water in general.   Although we are traditionally known as the home of Dart Sailing, we have grown to a diversified membership with all types of yachts, and we welcome all sailors and are willing to host events for all catamarans, dinghies, and keelboats on request.

Our camping and sailing environment is secure. The camping site is on the foreshore with several power and water points. There is a large smooth shoreline to accommodate sailing boats of all classes, which provides for easy launching and rigging areas. A long slipway provides for the launching of larger boats. The club layout provides for fantastic visual spectator value on the foreshore.

Stilbaai has an ideal environment for families to enjoy the outdoors.   Our clubhouse has a number of facilities for adults and children, including a pool table, table tennis, dart boards, foozeball, fenced in pool, volleyball court, trampoline, jungle gym, putt putt course etc. etc.    There are communal braai facilities, a licensed pub and DSTV. There are two clean and well-maintained ablution blocks offering showers and baths.

Stilbaai is superbly positioned for the viewing of brilliant sunsets with sundowners at the Wet Bar. 

The premises are patrolled by security guards with access control into the Club and the perimeter is secured by an electrical fence. Stilbaai offers clean drinking water and friendly social members.


We are an accredited Sailing Training Centre – See Sail Training on our Web Page for more information on this.   For further enquiries on sail training please contact Shellee Nel (083 626 7597) from SA Sailing Training Centre


Stilbaai is gaining a reputation of being the best managed yacht club on the Vaal Dam and is privileged to have a permanent on-site hands-on manager and experienced race management resources
