For over 30 years, ‘The Coves’ have been a driving force of passion, fun & friendship.

Our Team

The Rotary Club of Sydney Cove is Sydney’s largest clubs and part of Rotary District 9675.  We are a diverse group of passionate and like-minded people with the common goal of giving back to the community we live and work in. What sets us apart is that we meet on a boat on beautiful Sydney Harbour.

We are an irreverent bunch with fun and joy as our priorities. We do serious community driven work and are fully committed to our local and international projects.

Diversity & Inclusivity

What makes “The Coves” special is its people. We are a diverse group of men and women. We range in ages from young professionals looking for opportunities such as leadership through to our seasoned Rotarians who are great mentors.

We are from all walks of life as well as many countries, bringing a variety of knowledge and experience to everything we do. Our conversation is always lively and our social and project calendar always busy.

Our Meetings

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month for breakfast from 7:15am to 8:30am aboard a Captain Cook Cruise vessel, moored at King St, Wharf 1, Sydney. On the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month you can join us virtually on Zoom.

During our meetings we always have a speaker, these range from journalists to scientists and everything in between. It is like your very own weekly TED talk!

Every year in November we hold one large charity fundraiser. This is the Rotary SOLAS Regatta in conjunction with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia.

You’ll find plenty of opportunities to get involved in over thirty community projects, with the added benefit of networking and forming friendships with over 100 club members.
