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 - 6:00pm Fridays
Twilight racing is the perfect way to start the weekend. Races start at 18:00 every Friday during March. 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 afterwards for a cold beer and cook your own steak.

Endeavour Yacht 52nd Regatta
Congratulations to all BBYC members who sailed at the 2017 national titles at Drumoyne Sailing Club on 21& 22 January.
Well sailed Kokomo, the new crew line up of father and son Grant and Kyle with Freddie and Dave, saw them finish 1st on scratch in all six races to be the E26 national champions (5 pts) and 3rd on handicap. Sailing into his eight decade last month, skipper Brian has his best result yet, with Wundurra placing third overall (20 pts). Blys crossed the line 2nd a couple of times to finish 5th overall (25 pts).
In the E27+ division BBYC boat Rhumbline was 2nd overall and 2nd on handicap. An upset in the E24s with Corinna tumbling Dumaresq from the podium after several victorious years.
The Club provides a tender for transport to and from vessels on the Club’s register in Kogarah Bay, see the Tender Use Policy.
The tender may be driven by members on weekends (from 4pm Friday) and public holidays.
Priority must be given to vessels participating in Club events, including racing, regattas and cruising division activities (see Blue Book).
Fast turnaround is required. The tender may not be left tied to a vessel or mooring
New members welcome!
There's no cost to try crewing, then crew membership is just $130, which works out at $2.50 a week - less than a cup of coffee!
