Welcome to the Botany Bay Yacht Club! We're a volunteer sailing club, racing and cruising keel boats on the enclosed waters of Botany Bay, Kogarah Bay and the Georges River.
Twilight Sailing - 6:30pm Fridays
Twilight racing is the perfect way to start the weekend. Races start at 18:30 every Friday. All welcome to come and try crewing, including those new to sailing.
Its FREE to try twilights, call or email us to arrange your spot, or simply turn up at the Club at least an hour before the race start. Develop your sailing skills in the sheltered waters of Kogarah Bay and the Georges River.
Join us in the Clubhouse after for a cold beer and cook your own steak.
