Which Boat For Me?
Darrin Stollznow gave a presentation to many interested young sailors earlier in the season outlining the various boat classes available to up-and-coming sailors.
Darrin will run more sessions next season to help children transition from BYRA's Learn to Sail courses to owning and sailing their own boat.
Portuguese Beach Picnic - 13th April
The sailing season is into its last few weeks so it's time to think about the famous Portuguese Beach Picnic.
Sailors, family and friends from RPA, Avalon and BYRA gather at beautiful Portuguese Beach for a BBQ and lots of fun and games.
- Interclub games
- Egg throwing competition
- Sack races
Mark it on your calendar and we hope to see you there to represent BYRA. Just bring something for the BBQ and drinks.
See our Portuguese Beach Picnic page for more details.

Sailing on Pittwater
The Bayview Yacht Racing Association (BYRA) is both a dinghy racing and yacht club based on Pittwater, in Sydney's northern beaches. We offer some of the best water access and sailing conditions in Sydney. The club boasts a proud history of producing state, national and world champions and is a friendly family club with a strong sense of community.
We offer dinghy racing on Sunday afternoons and twilight yacht racing on Tuesday nights from September to May. New members and visitors are always welcome to join our existing fleets or introduce a new class to the club.
BYRA has a strong focus on skills development, and offers learn to sail programs, junior sailing on Sunday mornings, introduction to racing, race training and other support as requested. BYRA has an ongoing commitment to supporting junior sailors and fostering their sailing skills, from learn-to-sail programmes through to elite competition.
BYRA is run entirely by volunteers, and we welcome you to get involved at the club, whether in race organisation, on our response boats, in the canteen or in the many other jobs associated with keeping our club operating smoothly.
You'll always recognise a BYRA sailor by their smile and friendly welcome, and that's just as important to us as doing well on the race course.
