Keelboat and
small yacht racing

Whilst Yacht racing was the reason that BYRA was founded in 1949 the emphasis of the club has turned to dinghy sailing and teaching the young yacht racers of the future.

There are members who have small yachts and keelboats on the swinging moorings off the clubhouse and around the bays who cruise Pittwater

The club wants to encourage Keelboat members, who are often dinghy participants, to meet on a number of outings during the year. It may be an excursion to the Hawkesbury area or a raft up somewhere and of course, there is the Portuguese Beach Picnic outing in April.
