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 - Fridays
Twilight racing is the perfect way to start the weekend. Races start at 6pm in October, then move to 6:30pm in November. 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.

Come & meet your fellow cruisers & plan summer cruising actvities incl bay and offshore day sails, weekends away and plans for New Year's Eve.

Vale Inger Falck
It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of Inger Falck after a battle with cancer. Inger was a BBYC member for many years, enjoying cruising Ironbark, a staysail schooner, with Mervyn and their grandson Ryder. Our thoughts are with Merv and family at this sad time.
