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.

  • Summer Rally 2021 – Bucklers Hard
    With our previous Rally almost a year ago, it was great that the Covid-19 restrictions had eased enough that we could meet in unlimited numbers, and properly enjoy our 2021 Summer rally.  The lure of a BBQ at Bucklers Hard enticed an impressive number of members, with 11 boats planning to attend, with even more looking to come by road. The weather decided it didn’t entirely want to play the game, with strong winds and rain forecast.  It was enough to persuade a couple of boats to dispatch their crew in cars rather than enjoy the summery
