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.
Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Festival (5-9 September 2014): The GYC Landside bar will be open on Friday evening, and the Clubhouse bar will be open all day Saturday and Sunday, and on Tuesday afternoon and evening, during the Tall Ships Festival. Visitors are very welcome to visit the club and watch activities on the River between the Thames Barrier and the O2 Dome.
Greenwich Yacht Club opens its gates to the public annually for the London Open House weekend but visitors are welcome any Tuesday evening or weekend.
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.
- If you're interested in joining why not come along on a Tuesday evening or weekend afternoon/evening to look around and meet us.
