Melbourne Whittley Cruiser Club
Family Cruising Adventures – The MWCC promotes boating safety and offers regular training and practice opportunities to improve and refine boat handling skills with fellow club members. We take every opportunity to be out cruising on the water with trips planned every month all over Victoria and up the Eastern Seaboard, weather permitting.
We support new members as they learn their way around their boat in many different waterways, and you will absolutely love the thrill each time we venture out for another cruise.
The Adventure Begins –Great waterways, relaxed and inclusive cruise events, and boating experience to share… Social boating at its best!
Meet other Whittley owners while discovering different destinations within our own state of Victoria, as well as Tassie, SA, NSW and Qld. Join us at the Ovens River, Mallacoota, Lake Eildon, Nagambie, Gippsland Lakes, Refuge Cove, or even as far afield as Sydney Harbour, The Hawkebury River and The Whitsundays.
Every cruise has a leader, a tail end “Charlie”, and Vhf radio contact between all boats to ensure safety and enjoyment.
