The friendly Club next to Yar bridge

Yarmouth Sailing Club sits next to the swing bridge over the river Yar at the Western end of the Isle of Wight. It’s a friendly, informal, inclusive club with over 800 members run on a volunteer basis. It is an RYA Training Centre and as such delivers sail training, power boating and first aid training to its members. A welcome is always extended to visiting yachtsmen.
