Frankston Yacht Club encourages both Social Sailing and Club Racing.

Racing is conducted for both monohull and catamaran classes on Saturday afternoons from October to April.

A structure is in place which encourages and promotes class racing whilst also providing the mechanism for the introduction of new classes to the Club and the support of existing classes with insufficient numbers through the provision of miscellaneous divisions.

The Club also hosts events on behalf of other organisations each season, including Yachting Victoria (YV) and class associations

Social Sailing is encouraged during trophy and participation days. Trophy races have been designed to encourage all members to participate and enjoy their time on the water. Members are encourage to bring families and friends  to participate in club activities.
