Boating Western Australia (BWA) is a non-profit association, established for the promotion and development of safe, economic and enjoyable recreational boating throughout Western Australia.
It was established by ordinary boaters to assist with the needs of those interested in boating so that they may have a central body to represent them in matters of common interest, social contact and the broadening of further knowledge about boating and associated issues.
BoatingWA is committed to represent your views.
Membership is available to all those who enjoy recreational boating.
The Swan Yacht Club, Bunbury Yacht Club and Fremantle Sailing Club are affiliate member clubs.
Could it be any better?
BoatingWA has established a regular meeting with Rottnest CEO Michelle Reynolds to investigate issues and facilities.
