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.

  • Autumn Rally 2021 – East Cowes
    We had a great turnout of 11 boats and 30 people to our final Rally of the year, which saw us returning to East Cowes. Some boats were particularly keen, and arrived a day early, which was perhaps a good plan considering the low cloud and general misty conditions on the Saturday morning, which kept the Island hidden until at least halfway across the Solent. There was limited wind, which meant most boats resorted to their metal sails for some of the journey, even if a certain Rear Commodore did briefly try to claim that his new
