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 140 years.  This year, 2015, is the 140th Anniversary of the  Royal Dorset Yacht Club. 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.  The New Year was welcomed in style with a 'Masquerade Ball' accompanied by a 'string quartet' and luxurious seafood buffet.  Further social events are planned through the winter and spring months, including Burns Night and Valentine Dinner; 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 make plans for the forthcoming season.


Whilst the 2014 season has drawn to a close and we await the start of the new season, remember that your Club is still open for you to enjoy.
