The club is a not-for-profit company – run by members for members.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.


Presentation celebration - Sun 15 July

Tickets on sale now, just $25pp including finger food and desert. Get your tickets at the Club this weekend or email us.

Saturday Afternoon Racing - Winter Series

We race on Botany Bay almost every Saturday afternoon, with all winter races starting on the Bay at 13:00 sharp. Boats usually head out to the bay about 90 minutes before the race. The last race of the winter series is Sat 14 July. Spring racing will commence in September.

New crew at all skill levels are welcomed. Please contact us beforehand to be matched with a skipper or be at the clubhouse by 11:00.

Terrific to see an all female crew on the water with the J/109 'Vamos' having an awesome start to the winter series - 1st to the wing mark and 3rd over the line. Check out the photos on our Facebook page.

Congratulations to the crew of 'Blys', our Autumn series champions. 'Tics Tacs' won the Summer series with 'Hop Step &' winning the Sprint series. Congratulations also to 'Vamos', the David Holloway trophy champions.

Boat owners can race their way - compete throughout the whole year, select your preferred race series or simply enter per race as a casual entry.

Ladies Day - Sunday, 17th June

All are welcome to come for a sail and join us for afternoon tea afterwards! Ladies choose to steer, crew or cruise, if you take the helm you could win a big shiny gold trophy and some bubbles.

We've put a special request in for a beautiful sailing day after a number of earlier dates for this wonderful event were blown away by the weather.

The race for the Norma Dicken trophy will start outside the Club at 1:00pm and boats must have a female helm to be eligible. Ladies - please contact Karen if you're looking for a boat to sail on. Fellas - you're very welcome to come for a sail too.

Skippers - looking for a female to helm your boat? Please let Karen know.

Cruising division - Sun 30 Sept

Join us to cruise in company on the last Sunday each month. Check out our cruising facebook page for more info on what's planned.

Twilight Sailing - back to Friday afternoon fun in October

Sadly we've had our last sunset race of the summer. Congratulations to Tic Tacs, winner of the 2018 New Year twilight series and Miss Behavin, champions of the overall Summer twilight series.

Friday twilight sailing will be back in October with daylight saving hours.
