You and the staff did a fantastic job. Our friends and family were so impressed with the venue, the food and the outstanding service. 

 Again, thanks for your diligence, professionalism and assistance during the wedding. The day was everything we could have hoped for. 

Thank you, Kate & Tom (December 2015)


Thanks so much for all your wonderful help and cooperation and your warm and friendly support throughout the whole wedding process. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thanks also to all the staff for making everything run so smoothly beforehand and on the night. We will definitely be recommending the BYS!

Warmest wishes, Stella and Firas (February 2016)


Where do we begin?! From the moment we met you we knew we were in good hands. Our wedding day was so beautiful and it went without a hitch. We wanted to send a huge thank you for being so supportive throughout the planning process. There was not a single thing too hard for you to take on board. We felt so relaxed and comfortable. As for all the staff at BYS, WOW I’ve heard so many amazing compliments from the copious amounts of delicious food and the very attentive and friendly staff. I personally (the bride) have never had such amazing service, numerous staff throughout the night checking in and making sure I had everything I needed. We just can’t speak highly enough of you all and not to mention the breathtaking backdrop we had all night. Thank you for all you have done for us and for making us feel so special on our day. The BYS is by far the best venue in the area which we recommend to everyone and anyone who wishes for a wedding they will never forget.

Thank you, Vlad & Natalie (February 2016)


Last night was a great success. Thank you most sincerely for your help in bringing this about.

The weather was superb so we were fortunate in this regard but the food and service were excellent too. Guests commented on the delicious food of which there was ample; certainly no one would have gone home hungry.

The waiters were friendly and did a great job making sure everyone was well looked after. All our guests seemed to be having a lovely time enjoying the ambience of your facility as well as the company. There was a happy, relaxed atmosphere throughout the night.

We will look forward to repeating this event next year.

Kind regards, Elaine (March 2016)


On behalf of the Shire, I would like to express our appreciation and congratulate all of the staff at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron on a wonderful event.

The evening was run very professionally, staff were very accommodating and went over and above, the food was sensational (I personally loved the Eton Mess) and without a doubt, all the fabulous feedback from the guests is overwhelmingly positive.

We hope to work with you and your team in the future!

On behalf of the Sorrento/Portsea/Rye Red Cross Unit, thank you most sincerely for allowing us the use of the Yacht Squadron at our recent Summer Luncheon.

The room looked lovely and the day was a great success and enjoyed by those who attended, it really is a beautiful room to hold a function.

Please pass our thanks onto the staff who helped on the day and especially the Chef for the delicious food.

Thank you once again and we look forward to holding the function at the Squadron again next year.
