Brighton & Seacliff Yacht Club
28th December – January 3rd 2017/18 "Confirmed"
Brighton and Seacliff Yacht Club (BSYC) is one of Adelaide’s leading sailing clubs. More than just a yacht club, we are a function centre, a sailing and aquatics school and a community focus area with two bars and a bistro. People of all ages and backgrounds feel at home in BSYC where there is something for everyone.
BSYC is Adelaide’s foremost off-the-beach yacht club and our experience is gained not just through the successful organisation of Club sailing but the management of numerous state, national and world championships. The club has made a significant contribution to the design and development of yacht classes and BSYC appeals to members of all ages and abilities.
BSYC has currently undergone massive changes in the way that boats are stored, rigged and launched. The addition of new storage sheds and sheltered rigging area consisting of lawned and hard surfaces. Coupled with the easy access from rigging to launching which is just a short transition from the club to the water’s edge makes it the ideal location for National Championships. Full access to the beach is available by concrete ramps with suitable vehicles, the sand is usually hard and flat. Boats can be left secure in the rigging area overnight and road base trailers left on the beach secured in front of the club.
The sailing area straight out in front of the club offers great sailing conditions with the club balcony being the perfect viewing platform for spectators where they can have lunch and drinks as the fleet fights it out on the water.
On the water safety management.
The club is fully equipped with start/finish boats, numerous ribs capable of setting down buoys and setting accurate angles for downwind legs ensuring great racing. They also offer full rescue capabilities. These boats are manned by fully experienced crew to deal with any eventuality. So regardless of entry numbers you can race confidently knowing that all aspects of safety are covered.
Where BSYC is positioned along the coast this makes it easy to commute to local attractions and has numerous local accommodation options available to travelling guests. Glenelg is only a 15mins drive north where beach, shops, attractions and café culture is in abundance. With a short ride south to the amazing vineyards of McLaren Vale with vast number of cellar doors offering beautiful scenery, wine tasting and dining options, a must do while visiting South Australia!
