GEGRAPHE BAY YACHT CLUB

Geographe Bay
Western Australia

Welcome to Geographe Bay Yacht Club

Situated in Busselton in the south west of Western Australia, the Geographe Bay Yacht Club overlooks the vast expanse of sheltered water from which the club takes it's name.

It commands a superlative vantage point on the long stretch of sand for which Geographe Bay is renowned, and is only a short distance from the town centre. From the modern Clubhouse, you can take in the whole bay from Capel to Cape Naturaliste, including the famous 1.8 km Busselton Jetty.

Geographe Bay is an ideal body of water for sailing and has been the focal point of sailing in the South West for over 50 years, hosting large numbers of boats in regular club events and various State and National Titles.

In addition, Geographe Bay Race Week is held during the month of February and has boasted entries of up to 120 boats.

Next year's event is scheduled to run from Saturday 6th to Friday 12th Feb 2021.
