Directions: If you travel N-W from Heathcote out the McIvor highway around 4km, turn left onto Mia Mia-Derrinal Rd. Follow this out and as the road sweeps around to the left on your right is Speedboat road. Take this until you see a gate, head straight and at the end you will see the VSBC gates.
There will be blue VSBC signs at each turn!


Our Club is based at Lake Eppalock, in the Derrinal Pool near Heathcote, where we have our Clubhouse and racing headquarters. Our site at Eppalock has a good number of caravan and campsites, and water activities like skiing swimming and fishing are enjoyed. Lake Eppalock is a large expanse of water that is greatly suited to speedboat racing. We have a great pit area, with tractors and undercover fly overs available to rent for the weekends.
It has a great view of the action from the sloping banks spectators can see the entire course, you can just sit back and enjoy the thrills.
ALL classes will be catered for and we aim to have minimum 3 races per day for each class.

Major Events/ Races


Championship races are:

Scrutineering/pits: All boats will be required to be scrutineered prior to being allowed on the water, including for testing and practice runs. All scrutineering will be conducted within the pit areas.
