The Allsail Story

Established in 1988 by Mike De Berg, Allsail began as a sail training club to satisfy those who had an interest in and passion for the sea and sailing, but didn’t own a boat.

A fleet of J24s and other offshore yachts, ranging from 35 to 44 ft, provided plenty of fun and challenges for sailors, whether they were cruising Pittwater or heading into the ocean towards Hobart, Hamilton Island, New Caledonia or beyond.

In 1996, Mike established annual overseas flotillas in the Mediterranean. During the 2001 trip, current owner Russell Waddy joined as a trainee skipper along with wife Cherie, who was delighted to embark on her first overseas sailing adventure.

In 2003, Mike passed the baton to Graham Friend, a businessman with a passion for sailing. He introduced the stunning Radford 50 Seaquest. This yacht celebrated many successes, including winning the 2005 Rolex Trophy. Graham also took Allsailers to the Carribean for the first time.

Russell and Cherie Waddy took over Allsail in 2008 and decided to take it to the next level. Today, Allsail is a dominating force in Pittwater. It’s a sailing, racing and training club with one of the most impressive charter and yacht share fleets on Pittwater.

The Australian Sailing affiliated club continues the tradition of overseas yachting trips to amazing locations every single year.

Regattas, races and adventures abound!

Over the years, thousands of people have learned how to sail through Allsail’s amazing collective of instructors, volunteers and passionate individuals. On Pittwater and beyond, Allsail has fulfilled long-time passions and allowed people to build on their sailing skills and experience while forming long-term friendships.
