Aldeburgh Yacht Club (Sailing)

General Details

Aldeburgh Yacht Club, situated on the Suffolk coast, is a large and thriving club catering for all aspects of sailing. Located between the sea and the River Alde one mile south of the town of Aldeburgh the Club is able to organise racing on the river and, for dinghy open meetings and certain other events, on the sea.

Founded in 1897, the Club now benefits from some 1,800 members and has a large modern purpose-built clubhouse constructed in 1992 and extended in 1996.

There is active racing at weekends from April to December with both keelboat and dinghy classes and a more frequent programme, particularly amongst the youth and junior classes, during August. There is also an active cruiser fleet with organised events both locally, in the Thames Estuary and further afield. Members also own a number of motor boats and RIBs/sports boats of various sizes.

The Club has an active social programme and new members are welcomed. Juniors are particularly encouraged with tuition available for both learning to sail and learning to race.
