Becoming a Geographe Bay Yacht Club member will keep you up to date with the latest news from the sailing world across Australia, local and national on and off water events, competition information and results.

The club occupies a large area of land with direct access to the beach. It has a large expanse of well kept grassed frontage for rigging boats, and also for entertainment. Barbecues, including a gas facility, are provided for members' use. The Club House consists of a modern brick building including hall, galley, licensed bar and lounge for the use of members. Sailing is controlled from a tower that overlooks the Bay and from which radio contact is maintained with the Club's rescue boats.

Undercover boat storage is available for dinghys, and a secure hardstand compound provides safe storage for larger boats. The Club maintains tractors for launching the many trailer-sailers that compete from the club.

Ample car parking is provided in the grounds, and for special sailing events, camping is available by arrangement. There are ideal vantage points for viewing sailing.

The Club caters for both Social members and Sailing members, with a strong emphasis on family involvement. Catering is provided on sailing days with food and drinks to satisfy all appetites.

GBYC is an accredited Sail Training Establishment, affiliated with Yachting Association of W.A. and the Australian Yachting Federation.
