BYS’s brand new $5m clubhouse opened in October 2015. With demolition of the old clubhouse back in September 2014 – the new building was constructed with us only being without a permanent clubhouse for just one season. The new clubhouse is built over 3 levels. Downstairs sees great modern office facilities for our staff, an inviting entrance foyer, a large junior lounge, a canteen, change-rooms, and lots of storage area. A generous deck area provides a large shaded informal area immediately adjacent to the junior lounge that leads to our well grassed lawn. On the first floor is our spacious and flexible 200 person ‘Southern Waters Room’ that can serve as a function facility, bistro and meeting room. On the eastern side is the Racing Lounge which provides members with a great bar, meals and social area. Serving both rooms and the deck is a full commercial kitchen and a large bar. Outside is a massive deck overlooking the lawn and views from Sorrento to Arthur’s Seat and beyond. Upstairs is our race control room, sailing offices and the Commodore’s Room which provides a superb venue for smaller groups coupled with the best view on the Peninsula.
