All about the CROUCH YACHT CLUB today

The Crouch Yacht Club enjoys a superb location on the town quayside with unrivalled views of the River Crouch and Wallasea Island opposite. Situated towards the western end of Burnham on Crouch, the Clubhouse is in an ideal location for both visitors to the town and Burnham Yacht Harbour alike. All visiting yachtmen and also those who just want to come in to find out more about sailing are very welcome to join us in the Clubhouse.

The current Clubhouse consists of two fully licensed bar areas with excellent river views and a large dining area which can seat over one hundred people for dinner. We also have a fantastic river front restaurant area on the first floor which can seat up to thirty five people. With our full time Club Manager and Caterer, we can and do provide success for any occasion. For those who wish to stop over for the evening we have a number of bedrooms which can be hired either on a daily or more permanent basis.

Formed in 1907, the Club has an excellent sailing pedigree and is respected across the East Coast and Europe for its cruiser racing successes. On the River Crouch, the Club offers open cruiser racing every Sunday of the year between March and the end of December. We also offer one-design and local handicap racing. It is from our strong cruiser racing roots that the Club has achieved 2007 and 2008 East Coast offshore and “around the cans” club championships. The Crouch Yacht Club is also part of the organising committee for the famous Burnham Week and so is an ideal Club to join in preparation for that event.

Yacht racing is not our only interest and we have a strong and growing yacht cruising class with more events and particpants every year. We also have a good motor boat section, enjoying themselves either helping out with the racing, taking part in organised cruising events or just motoring by themselves in this lovely stretch of water.

Please feel free to pop in anytime and join us at the bar for a chat. You will find this a most friendly, welcoming and social club with plenty of organised entertainment for those who wish to take part. Should you like to join the Club please complete an application form which you can find on this website.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
