Welcome to Lowry Bay Yacht Club
We are a club of approximately 250 members with a passion for yachting and boating. We offer both racing and cruising events on the water as well as land based activities and social gatherings in our club rooms.
Our Club has a bar which is open on Friday evenings with catering , Saturday afternoons and following race events. It's a great gathering place for members, family and friends.
Located in Seaview Marina, there are a host of marine businesses and facilities on hand and we welcome new members at all times

LBYC skippers – SMS texting is here
Earlier this year the club closed its Twitter account as messages were not being received by all phones. SMS texting will now be used to communicate messages to racing boats. Skippers are asked to nominate themselves or a crew member to receive messages that can be conveyed to the rest of the crew, e.g. “racing cancelled” or “racing delayed” by sending an email with their boat name, nominated person and cell phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to all our
