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.

  • Winter Talks – Change of day
    Following a trial at the end of the 2021-22 Winter Talk series, the decision has been taken to move the meetings to a Wednesday for 2022-23. This change will allow us to continue using the main function room at the British Legion.
  • Summer Rally 2022 – Lymington
    With the venue meaning a sail to the West for everyone, it was unsurprising to find a Westerly wind forecast, but fortunately it wasn’t quite on the nose so sailing was less of a beat than expected. 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
