The Orange Sailing Club has operated since 1960 then moved to Carcoar in 1970 and became the Carcoar Dam Sailing Club (CDSC) in 1973. It is one of the only sailing clubs managing to survive in the Central West, existing on the generosity of its members and many donations of both resources, skills and time.
