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 over 100 years and boasts a fascinating history.  Last year was the 140th Anniversary of the Royal Dorset Yacht Club and a number of successful commemorative events, including the reintroduction of a Royal Dorset Regatta, were held to celebrate the occasion.  This year's regatta will take place on Sunday the 5th of June.


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, free WiFi and stunning views over Weymouth Harbour.  Please keep an eye on the website for more informal and formal opportunities to catch up on the season's events, share some 'salty sea dog tales' and make plans for this season.


We have recently commenced our monthly Members’ nights.  A number of interesting talks to wet your appetites for voyages further afield during 2016 are already planned.    


The Royal Dorset offers a warm welcome, especially to visiting yachtsmen.  Last year we have introduced a new membership category (Affiliate Membership) specifically aimed at boat owners from other yacht clubs.


The new ground floor Restaurant Pizzeria and Bar 'Adriatico', serving a delicious menu of Mediterranean food, including speciality Croatian pizza, is now open.


To our existing and prospective members as well as visitors, the Royal Dorset is open for you to enjoy.
