Poole Yacht Club Membership

Poole Yacht club is one of the premier yacht clubs on the South Coast. We welcome new members throughout the year

With a 350 berth marina, 51 swinging moorings and a 250 space dinghy park we offer Racing and Social Sailing for both cruisers and sailing dinghies in a friendly environment. Based next to the ferry terminal in Poole, our club house has stunning views over the harbour and we host social and sailing events throughout the year. The club is led by members, for the members with a strong volunteering ethos.

  • Full dinghy and cruiser racing programme with racing several times a week
  • Social cruising programme from April to October
  • Social sailing twice a week from May to September
  • Dinghies for hire including Hartley 15s, Fusions and Optimists plus SUPs
  • Excellent RYA accredited training for children at all levels
  • Social events throughout the year
  • Regular club, regional and national sailing events

Never tried sailing or looking to improve?

There are always yacht skippers and dinghy helms looking for new crew to train up so you don’t have to have your own boat to join.

For juniors, as an approved RYA training centre we offer sailing training on a Wednesday evening for children aged 8 upwards from April to September. We also offer adult beginners and improvers sailing courses with boats available to hire.
