BYRA is a family oriented amateur sailing club and we would welcome any and all help from parents especially in launching safety boats, setting marks (if you have a boat license) and in the canteen.

Due to the high demand for the course at this stage, the final confirmations for course enrolment will go out one or two weeks prior to the commencement of the courses. Though if you have your own boat or access to a boat we can generally place you in the next available course.
