BSYC is located at the southern end of the Esplanade at Seacliff, approximately 30 minutes south of Adelaide’s CBD. Looking over the Gulf of St Vincent , BSYC is relatively sheltered at the foot of Marino Rocks and we are directly beside Kingston Caravan Park and serviced by both train and bus.

Getting here from Adelaide CBD

Take Anzac Highway and turn left onto Brighton Road. Turn right onto Jetty Road at Brighton and then left onto The Esplanade and keep going until you reach the public car park.

Getting here from Eastern Suburbs

Take Goodwood Road and then Main South Road. Turn right onto Seacombe Rd. Turn left onto Brighton Road and then immediately right onto Wheatland Street. At The Esplanade turn left until you reach the car park

Getting here from the south

From Hallett Cove go north on Ocean Boulevard and turn left onto Wheatland Street. At the Esplanade turn left until you reach the car park. Otherwise go north on the Expressway or Main South Road and turn left onto Seacombe then Brighton Road and Wheatland Road.


Attached to the drawings will be a separate document called "Notes", which will be introduced here. They are actually a set of rules to be used when assessing what we have produced.

Here they are........

• The Masterplan is a document showing long term concepts only, it is to be used as a basis for future planning of our facilities and development of our site. Example: Council is interested in such a document, it assists Council to look at the development plans for the local precinct as a whole and whether future funding of yacht club facilities might be considered.

• Any future improvements to land and buildings should align with the overall concepts in the Masterplan. Example: Any capital intensive upgrades to toilets and changerooms should be carefully considered to avoid conflict with the Masterplan. They may have to be demolished in the future, which would be a waste of money.

• The drawings are not meant to be looked at in detail. This may well change as various elements of the Masterplan are implemented. Example 1: You may not like the proposed location of the lift, just remember the CONCEPT is for a lift to be installed one day. We may never be able to afford one. In the interim we may decide to connect with the Surf Club's ramp to provide disabled and heavy goods access to the upper deck. Example 2: You may not agree with the general layout of the upper deck bar and galley, again these have low priorities at this early stage, the CONCEPT is for a upgrade one day, and the final details may change for good reasons at that time.

• The various Stages are not fixed and have no specific priority. Example 1: Stage B may well be the first one because it makes the operation of the bar and canteen more flexible and is more appealing to the public. Example 2: A single bay shed in the existing back yard of the house next door is not contemplated by the Masterplan, but it does not conflict with it. Given that we can't afford to lose the house, this shedding might well be enough to accommodate the junior fleet and assist in our plan to demolish the old boatshed.

• The Masterplan concepts show intended final uses for the various facilities, but these may change in the interim. Example 1: The junior boat storage is finally located on the southern boundary, however it might temporarily be in the house backyard and the eastern shed before it finds its final home. Example 2: If the downstairs canteen is relocated, the existing room and indeed the corridor outside of it may be used for other purposes such as storage or meeting room.

Do you get the idea? The overall CONCEPTS are what we are looking at, not the detail. Don't try and redesign the detail, that opportunity will come when the club actually has the money to do the work. Please come along to the AGM and give this Masterplan a good going over. Lindsey will be there and so will representatives of the cubcommittee.

If our membership is happy with it, the next step will be to present it to Council as a first step to:

• relocating our junior boat storage
• demolishing the old boatshed
• creating a large central rigging or recreational area in the centre of our grounds
• improving the overall appearance of the club.

Over to you.
