Welcome to Greenwich Yacht Club

Located halfway between the Millennium Dome and the Thames Barrier GYC is now over 100 years old, founded by a handful of Thames sailors in 1908, and boasts around 400 members. The club caters for cruiser sailors, dinghy sailors, motor-boaters and rowers. Sail past Canary Wharf and beautiful Royal Greenwich up London's historic river or go down to the estuary for the East coast or a channel crossing. Motor cruisers can go right through the very heart of the capital, and have access to the river Lee and inland waterways. 

Visitors are welcome any Tuesday evening or weekend.

What We Do


We run a programme of yacht and dinghy racing, as well as practical and theory training all year round.

All classes of yacht and dinghy are welcome, but the emphasis is on enjoyment and arguing over a pint in the clubhouse afterwards. Our site and facilities are first class, having been newly built in 1999. We have both drying and deep water moorings, a boat yard and workshops. We also have probably the best yacht club bar in England, built on an island site out in the river with stunning views to the city and down to the Thames Barrier.

Over the week we are giving you the opportunity to try out all the activities at the GYC. These include dinghy, powerboat, keel boat, yachting and rowing. There will be sample theory courses for adults and children (over 12). All boats will be helmed by a qualified instructor and full safety equipment will be provided, we just ask that you bring your own waterproof gear if the weather demands. We will also be giving guided tours of the site that includes the club house mounted on stilts over the river, the river-side rooms that host larger functions, our boat sheds and sail loft. Sail making for kids, treasure hunts and quizzes will be run on the main days. There will be a BBQ, as well as our full menu on the river front balcony.
