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.

Latest News
  • Solstice Cruise 2021
    Covid restrictions in early 2021 meant the Spring Cruise had to be delayed until the summer for a second year. The cruise was not as heavily subscribed as last year, which may have been due to the Covid-19 restrictions that were still in place.  Crossing the Channel to France or the Channel Islands remained almost impossible, and the West Country was reported to be heaving with staycationers, but this seemed our only realistic option.  Attempts at advanced bookings for any berthing after Weymouth met with rejection, and so we were unsure exactly where we would find ourselves.
