About Us

Our Story

Welcome to Botany Bay Yacht Club!

We’re a not for profit sailing club, racing and cruising yachts on the enclosed pristine and uncrowded waters of Botany Bay, Kogarah Bay and the Georges River.
Our club is run by member volunteers for the benefit of all members.  All members pitch in to create a great family friendly environment with a relaxed social atmosphere.

Our Facilities

Clubhouse

The Club is open on race days, meeting nights and at other times to suit Club activities.  The forward schedule of our events is listed in our calendar.
We appreciate our neighbours and your consideration for minimising noise when arriving and leaving the Club.  Please do NOT park on the centre island of Endeavour Street.

Galley and Bar

Hot food and refreshments are available on race days.  The Club bar also operates on race days and may be open at other times to suit cruising and other Club activities.

Amenities

Hot showers and toilets are situated on the ground level underneath the clubhouse and are strictly limited for use by Club members.

Parking

Parking within the Club’s property is reserved for Full members only and spaces are limited.  Priority is given to boat owning members participating in scheduled Club events.

Boatyard  and  Hardstand

The Club’s boatyard and dock area are operated by our tenant, Endeavour Marine Services (EMS).
Slipping and hardstand facilities are available by arrangement with EMS.  Vessels up to 25T may be accommodated.  Owner’s tenders may be stored on the hardstand rack for a fee by arrangement with EMS.
BBYC Full members will save 10% on slipping costs.
As the Boatyard Commercial Operator, EMS will explain any restrictions that apply to activities within the boatyard and dock areas.  Fees apply.

Tender

The Club provides a tender on weekends and public holidays for transport to and from vessels listed on the Club’s register and moored in Kogarah Bay.  Priority use is given to those sailing in Club events.
Please refer to the Tender Use Policy for more detailed information regarding operation of the tender.
BBYC also provides a dinghy, which is available for use by members at any time.
Both the tender and the dinghy are for transport to and from a member’s vessel with fast turnaround required.  Neither may be left tied to a vessel or a mooring.
On race days, to enable everyone to be picked up quickly, skippers are requested to pick up and set down crew and equipment at either the Club pontoon or the public wharf, so that only 2 people are transported to or from a mooring.

Dock

The main pontoon dock is available for Full member boat owners to use on weekends and public holidays. Priority is given to boats sailing in Club events, including races, regattas and cruising activities.
Vessels may not be left unattended at the dock without the prior permission of the Club’s Rear Commodore or Commodore.
On weekdays, Full member boat owners may contact EMS to arrange use of the dock, subject to at least three days notice. No fee applies to Club members.

Swing  Moorings

Please contact EMS if you would like to rent a swing mooring.  Rental is subject to annual maintenance of the moorings, which may incur additional costs.
The Club has 3 swing moorings adjacent to the Club, available on an annual rental basis.  EMS also manages a further 25 swing moorings on behalf of the Club, which are available for both short and long term rental arrangements.
