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 Cruise 2023 – The breakaway group!
    The planned cruise itinery of The Yealm and Fowey had been an enticing prospect for the Spring Cruise, but a combination of circumstances made some of the fleet make the difficult decision not to round Portland Bill as intended. The crew of the four boats all had deadlines of when the return home was necessary, so the West Country element would only have been a brief stopover rather than a leisurely cruise. A likely bumpy passage across Lyme Bay, and the fact that the easterly winds were set to remain for the whole of the following week… Read more: Spring Cruise 2023 – The breakaway group!
  • Spring Cruise 2023 – Westward bound
    On the 29th May the Spring Cruise fleet assembled in Portland Marina; 10 sailing and 1 motorboat.  A brisk easterly had been blowing for some time which resulted in the great turnout.  We were all thinking of the planned trip across Lyme Bay so we took a bus to ‘The Bill’ to have a look at the sea state and the location of the yacht traps (aka lobster pot buoys). In the evening, The Kitchen restaurant opened just for Newbury Yacht Club and 27 sat down to an excellent meal. The next day, the plan was to… Read more: Spring Cruise 2023 – Westward bound
