You don't have to own a boat to join GYC, or even know how to sail. Many of our members come to us as complete beginners, and become inspired to go out and learn about sailing either on cruisers or dinghies.

For those who prefer not to rely on the wind, we also have a rowing section and an active motor cruising section.

Away from the river, we publish our own in-house magazine, Trident, three times a year and we have a forum for discussion on the website. We also have cycling and an Art club and other social activities.

Importantly, in matters of boating, we are a self-help club; our members do all the day-to-day maintenance work. Our clubhouse is one of the best in the country, so why not come along and take a look?

How to Join

If you'd like to know more, come along on a club night (Tuesday night, from 2000hrs onwards) and fill in an application form (ask at the bar for one).
