Welcome to Newbury Yacht Club

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 Bowlers Arms, Enborne Street, Wash Common, Newbury RG14 6TW.

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.

  • Spring Rally 2024 – East Cowes
    After what has felt like a very long winter, everybody was hoping that there would be an improvement in weather for the Spring Rally. Our Rear Commodore – Offshore did a remarkably good job with the sunshine, even if the rally itself was very nearly organised for the wrong day. Adding an extra boat to the fleet last minute proved very fortuitous, as the booking ‘challenge’ was identified in time. It’s always good to get the first Uncle Albert contender on the books nice and early… Ten boats and 23 people found their way to East Cowes… Read more: Spring Rally 2024 – East Cowes
  • Fitting Out Supper – Apr 24
    With the warmer weather slowly appearing, and the summer season getting closer, it was time for the annual Fitting Out Supper. Held at our regular meeting venue, The Bowler’s Arms, 40+ members enjoyed a meal of chilli and cheesecake. Entertainment was provided in the form of a quiz, with quiz mistress Laura and her two keen-eyed spotters to ensure no foul play. The first round had a nautical theme, which should have been perfect for a yacht club, but some of the questions still provided quite a challenge. Following rounds included identification of boat manufacturer logos, and… Read more: Fitting Out Supper – Apr 24
