PESC rebuild

We are thrilled to release the concept design for our new building!

Dover’s Port Esperance Sailing Club is ready to start construction of a new clubhouse following the
loss of its old clubhouse in an arson attack more than a year ago.
Following community consultation, detailed designs have been developed that will provide for a
universal-access community space with clubrooms, underfloor storage for boats, a bar, commercial
standard kitchen and toilet and shower facilities.
Funding for the re-build has been confirmed with the Tasmanian Government making a significant
financial commitment, supplementing the insurance payout and donations following the fire.
PESC’s Commodore, Matt Wardell, said ‘We are delighted that the Tasmanian Government
recognises the importance of the sailing club to Dover and the Far South community. We are very
grateful to the Government and others who have contributed to our fundraising efforts.’
PESC is now seeking expression of interest for the construction of the new clubhouse.


Port Esperance Sailing Club is the southernmost yacht club in Australia. It conducts regular dinghy racing and yacht cruising activities as well as sail-training.
