  • Corporate - Please contact us if your organisation is interested in access to our facilities for corporate events eg social club events.

The age limit shall be determined based on the age on 1 July before the start of the new season.

When you become a member of our club, you will be covered under the NEWC and the Australian Blokart Association (ABA) third party liability insurances when participating in scheduled events. You will also benefit from the Australian Sailing Personal Accident Insurance coverage. This includes cover for out of pocket medical expenses plus a variety of set benefits from injuries incurred whilst sailing at an affiliated club or whilst on the premises of an affiliated club.

Australian Sailing (AS) no longer issues ‘Silver cards’.  Should you need one, you will have to request it from AS.

Please note that all published club events are deemed to be either AS events or ABA events.  The Australian Sailing insurance covers personal injury insurance only for not Medicare claimable claims for injuries incurred during a club event and whilst traveling to and from that event.  The ABA insurance covers third party public liability insurance. (If a claim is made by a third party) NEWC has it's own Public liability insurance. It is recommended that members with their own yachts and/or blokarts have their own insurance to cover at least third party property damage.
