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.

The consolation for the wind direction was that it was a beautiful summers day, so a slightly longer sail didn’t seem a hardship. With some boats travelling to Lymington a day early, the Saturday arrivals found drinks were already on the go, so the afternoon was spent onboard Titian for many members, where the traditional anchovies on fried bread made
  • Spring Cruise 2022 – Channel Islands and France
    After a couple of years of disruption, the Spring Cruise was set to return to it’s usual schedule, and begin with an easy sail to Yarmouth. The weather didn’t entirely agree with the ‘easy’ part, especially those pushing up to Yarmouth from the East. Wind over tide kicked the Solent into a mini maelstrom to give us a wet ride, but at least it gave many of the boats a slight headstart on the channel crossing to Cherbourg. Dinner was enjoyed at The Wheatsheaf, before everyone retired early in preparation for the early morning start. For many
