Dar es Salaam Yacht Club

Dar es Salaam Yacht Club
Dar es Salaam Yacht Club

The Dar es Salaam Yacht Club was founded in 1933 on the waters’ edge of Dar es Salaam harbour by some keen sailing members of the then Dar es Salaam Club (the location is now the Forodhani Hotel on Kivukoni Front).

The club remained in the harbour until 1967 when it moved to the present site of Leopard’s Cove in the clean waters of Msasani Bay.

From a purely sailing club it set up the power boat section and then the diving section, which was originally a branch of the British Sub Aqua Club.
