Sail Now. Join later.

Try sailing before you join.


 A BYS Sail Pass will get you sailing fast.


We think that Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron is a great place to enjoy everything that a sailing club has to offer. From the experienced sailor looking to pit their skill against the best, or the family that just likes to get on the water for a bit of fun, to the member who loves the sense of community and the great member amenities, there really is something for everyone.


We understand that making the decision to join a club is a big one. It’s not just the financial commitment that can influence your decision, it’s all the little things that make a club inclusive, welcoming, and just a great place to spend time with friends and family that are so important. Perhaps that’s why our SailPass program is so popular.


What is Sail Pass and how can you get involved now?


Sail Pass lets you experience the thrill of being ‘crew’ on a competing yacht on race day. While that may sound serious, you can relax, it’s just a fun way to get out on the water, meet new people and see first-hand what the BYS family is all about.


And because it’s free, registering for your SailPass is like having a temporary membership where you can sail and enjoy the Member’s Clubhouse facilities before you join.


Here’s how it works.


Once registered you can visit the Club and sail on 6 days for free and if you choose, on a further 6 occasions for just $15 per day. Registration is required to conform to Australian Sailing racing rules and to ensure you are covered with personal insurance.

How to obtain your SailPass Membership

You will need to let us know when you’d like to sail so we can make the arrangements. A calendar of available sailing dates can be found here.

We encourage you to register for your SailPass in advance, however if you forget it’s possible to register on race day (depending on available places), when you get to the club. The team at the Sailing Office will be happy to help.
