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.

2. Wear appropriate footwear

3. Take a hand held radio or phone in a waterproof case

4. Tell someone where you are going

5. Ensure your tender is sea worthy

7. Secure any luggage or large items that you may be transporting

8. On arrival, approach into the tide and secure tender with a bowline to your boat. Consider using a stern line as well
