BLAIRGOWRIE YACHT SQUADRON
There’s always something happening at BYS
There’s more to BYS than sailing . . . A great way to meet other members and enjoy spending time at your Club to join one of our social groups. They’re a great way for friends to spend time together off water and an ideal way to make new friends too.
With so much sailing in our lives it’s surprising how much else we can pack into life at BYS. It seems like not a week goes by without something new. So please make sure you check back here often and feel welcome to come along and join in, it’s a fantastic way to meet new friends and build lifelong connections.
Keep an eye out for event updates in the club newsletter and check the online calendar for all the details.

The Junior Club Captain’s organise a Mystery Day each year (special outing to somewhere like Gravity Zone, Enchanted Maze etc) BBQ days, Easter egg hunt and other fun activities for our junior members.
