Formed in 1963 Marchwood Yacht Club is a self-help Club where we try to maximise on the
skills and talents within the club in order to keep our annual costs down for the membership.
To achieve this all members are expected to take an active part in maintaining and running the club.
Many of our Founder Members are still keen and active users of this fantastic club. The self help style
of the club has resulted in the building of our own pontoon system from scratch, and the Trafalgar Rooms
extension to our clubhouse.
Amongst our Membership we have people who have never sailed all the way up to Ostar Race winners.
Marchwood Yacht Club boasts 320 memberships which with affiliates and family Members means there are
over 600 of us. We also have many members who enjoy dinghy sailing and we offer dinghy sailing with the
Marchwood Minnows to some of our local residents and their children on Tuesday evenings in the summer.
The Club is affiliated to the RYA and whilst not a teaching establishment, Marchwood Yacht Club has evolved
into a Club for everyone who enjoys the life afloat.
In addition to the normal busy and well supported social life in our bar and clubhouse, the club organises
Wednesday evening racing in the summer and weekend Rallies around the Solent, and to Poole and Cherbourgh
as well as a full social program at weekends in the club house over the winter.
MYC has its own mix of deep water and shallow draft moorings at the sheltered top end of Southampton water.
The Club also boasts a large Boat Yard, with the ability to lift and store 165 yachts with a maximum length
of 40 foot. We also have our own slipways and foreshore.
If you feel Marchwood Yacht Club may be for you, please contact the Membership Secretary via the contact
page, and arrange to come and visit the club. Then if you like what you see you can take away a
membership application form.
We may surprise you how quickly you could obtain your own mooring and be offered space in our yard to
store your boat. We always welcome visitors and visiting yachts, so come and check us out.
