Welcome to the 2019-20 Keelboat Season

Club Captain’s Message – Richard Backwell


On behalf of the Sailing Committee I welcome all of you to another season at BYS. The club is always focused on delivering the highest-quality on-the-water program. This year the keelboat Aggregates will be raced in front of the club, making it easier for sailors and providing a spectacle for the members and guests on the deck. Doyle Sails has come on board as a sponsor of this series. Gift vouchers will be awarded for first, second and third in both PHS and AMS. Prizes will be awarded each race day.

BYS will be hosting a number of small regattas and titles throughout the season. In April 2019, we will be hosting the Victorian Youth Championships and Coaching Clinic. The best Youth and Junior sailors from Victoria and interstate will be showcasing their abilities. The sailing/boating activities offered at BYS cannot happen without the volunteers, both on and off the water. I thank you all in advance for your assistance. If at any time you want to discuss all things sailing, please do not hesitate to contact me or a member of your Sailing Committee.
