Welcome to Newbury Yacht Club, the home of sailing in Newbury Berkshire

Newbury Yacht Club is a club with an ethos of combining sailing and socialising. We’re affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association and are extremely proud to have celebrated our 50th anniversay in 2019.

We hold regular water-based events; sailing in the Solent for our weekend rallies and further afield (usually the West Country or northern France) for our annual cruise. Our fleet is often into double figures, which is a pretty good effort for a landlocked Berkshire sailing club!

We have a variety of winter talks with a water or sailing theme, which are hosted at The Newbury Royal British Legion.

We also organise a variety of sailing related training for our members, with agenda based on demand.

If you have an interest in leisure boating (either sail or power), own your own boat, are looking to crew on someone else’s boat, or just attend our winter talks, this could be the perfect club to join.

    Tom Cunliffe is a familiar speaker to the Club, and for good reason. Unlike last year, Tom was able to return to speak in person this time around, with the topic of choice being the development of the Shell Channel Pilot – a book well known by many. Tom gave an excellent, and highly entertaining talk, about the origins of the Pilot guide, through to his current stewardship. We learned of the headaches involved in exploring some of the less navigable harbours, as well as the challenges of clothing that doesn’t fit. Tom’s memory of information about
