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.


Saturday Afternoon Racing - Spring Series

Spring bay racing on Saturday afternoons. All races start at 13:00 until daylight saving starts. Check out the results so far.

New crew at all skill levels are welcomed. Two boats are looking for regular crew for the spring series and ad hoc spots are ofter available. Please contact us beforehand to be matched with a skipper and be at the clubhouse by 11:00.

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.

To enter your keel or sports boat please complete a race entry form, provide a copy of your racing insurance and liability cover ($10 million), your equipment audit (cat 7) and pay the fee.

Twilight Sailing - back to Friday afternoon fun 12 October

Save the date! Friday twilight sailing will be from 12 October when daylight saving starts. Races in October start at 18:00.

If you're new to sailing or have had a few lessons, twilight sailing in the sheltered waters of Kogarah Bay and the Georges River is a great way to build your skills. Please contact us beforehand to be matched with a boat and be at the clubhouse by 17:00.

Congratulations to Tic Tacs, winner of the 2018 New Year twilight series and Miss Behavin, champions of the overall Summer twilight series.

Equipment Audit - now due!

Racing yachts are reminded that its time to complete your annual equipment audit. Please note a VHF radio is a new and mandatory requirement from September 2018.
