Dining and Bar

Located on the first level, with direct access to the deck, it’s a great place to watch the bay and the beach over summer. In winter there is no better place to be than enjoying the couches in front of the warming fire. The Racing Lounge and deck area offers quick and tasty bar snacks and a great bistro menu.

For more on dining at BYS please refer to the FAQs at the bottom of this page.

Our bar and bistro is open in-line with the current Victorian Government restrictions. 

The Canteen

Cameron’s Bite Kiosk also know as ‘The Canteen’ on the ground level is conveniently located in front of the lawn.  It’s a great spot to grab some lunch before heading out sailing and is open every day from Boxing Day through to Australia Day for take-away coffee, cold drinks, ice creams and snacks from 10am.
