Welcome to Dunsborough Bay Yacht Club - it’s wonderful to have you aboard


DBYC has its roots in a group of locals who began getting together on the beach to sail dinghies and enjoy the fraternity of like-minded folks back in the 1990’s and indeed several of the original core group who quite literally built the club with their own hands, money and initiative are still involved today. Their choice of site to build a clubhouse was, and remains, a brilliant one and today DBYC’s facilities and amenity are the envy of many.  We run a simple bar for the benefit of members and their guests and our balcony is the perfect place to enjoy the Quindalup panorama. We are very fortunate to have such a space, and grounds, for sailing and socialising. 


We are a small club run entirely by volunteers - some locals, some from Perth and beyond -  but all with an interest in the region, sailing and the community down here on Geographe Bay. Indeed many of our volunteers are not sailors at all, but rather folks who simply like being involved in a community organisation that fosters sporting and social activities and nurtures youngsters interested in the wonderful world of sailing. 

We are a community within a community.


Our House Committee  - all volunteers - does a sterling job of running social events to bring members together on a regular basis. 

Our Juniors sailing program is built around club-owned and private Minnows and Flying Ants. Our Open Class sailing is dominated by Windrush 14 cats and Lasers (ILCA).  Our training fleet (for learn-to-sail programs) consists of Pacers and Windrush 14s, with several Lasers due to join the fleet. Ordinary members - i.e. full members - can access club boats at particular times when there are support boats on the water (a very important volunteer category). Please discuss this with the Rear Commodore if interested.  


That's right! DBYC is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 5pm. Come enjoy the world class views from the DBYC balcony with a cold beverage. Thanks to all our members and volunteers and sponsors who kindly make this happen. · Read more
