Poole Yacht Club Yachting World Day Boat

Welcome to the Yachting World Day Boat section at Poole Yacht Club! There are currently around 36 Dayboats at the club of which around 26 compete in the club racing with the others content to just cruise around the beautiful Poole Harbour. Our class racing night is every Monday and Thursday evening through April until the end of October in addition to this we also race most Saturdays. Another staple of our sailing calendar is the annual Yachting World Day Boat Open which is open to visiting Dayboats from other clubs. The first day of the event features a round the harbour islands event followed by an evening dinner. On the second day of the event The Newton Trophy is up for grabs after three races. Yachting World Dayboats have been a class at the club since the early 1950’s. Having previously been kept on swing moorings at the old club the Dayboats now occupy their own pontoon within the Haven, this allows us access to Poole Harbour at all states of tide. If you’re interested in finding out more about us or how to join The Yachting World Day Boat section then please get in touch!
