Welcome to the Brighton & Seacliff Yacht Club

Brighton and Seacliff Yacht Club (BSYC) is one of Adelaide’s leading sailing clubs. More than just a yacht club, we are a function centre, a sailing and aquatics school and a community focus area with two bars and a bistro. People of all ages and backgrounds feel at home in BSYC where there is something for everyone.

Weddings & Functions

When deciding on a venue to hold a function you will be influenced by three elements; the location, the service, the price.
BSYC is at the southern end of the Esplanade at Seacliff, 30 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD, and we offer a stunning, private, beach location with public car parking for over 100.  We offer 2 function areas, all air conditioned with spectacular views of sunsets in the sea.

Sailing School

Brighton & Seacliff Yacht Club offers courses for Adults and kids. our Adult courses are held on weekends and are recognised nationally. A great way to start out sailing and enjoy our club.
Tackers is an introductory, fun, games-based sailing program designed for kids aged 7 to 12 delivered at recognised Tackers Clubs. Kids don t need to have any sailing experience and they don t have to be a member of a club to participate. 

Seacliff Beach Bar & Kitchen

The Mariners Bar is one of those hidden gems you don’t find (or drink at) every day....and you don’t need to be a member to sip a few quiet ones either as everyone is welcome! 
Either sit inside and listen to the regulars hold forth on just about every subject under the sun (but especially sailing, fishing and the state of SA footy) or sit outside and watch the sun set over the Gulf.
