Welcome to the Royal Dorset Yacht Club

On behalf of the flag officers and club members, I welcome you to the Royal Dorset Yacht Club website.


Our club has been at the heart of sailing in Weymouth for the last 139 years.  Next year, 2015, it will 140 years since the Royal Dorset Yacht Club was formed and we are planning a number of events to celebrate the occasion including a Royal Dorset Regatta.


The fabulous clubhouse retains and celebrates the Club's history and traditions whilst providing first class bar and catering facilities, with separate lounge and dining areas, along with free WiFi and big screens showing live sailing and news events.


Throughout the year we host a number of formal and informal social events and have just had the most fantastic Trafalgar Dinner.  Further social events are planned through the autumn and winter months, please keep an eye on the 'events' section. These events provide an informal opportunity to catch up on the season's events, share some 'salty sea dog tales' and maybe plan for next year.


Even though the season has drawn to a close, remember that your Club is still open for you to enjoy.
