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 140 years and boasts a fascinating history. The Club was formed in 1875, making this the 142nd year.
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 opportunities to catch up on eventsboth on and off the water.
Our programme of monthly member's nights is well underway and should you have ideas for future club nights etc then please let me know as new ideas are always very welcome.
The Royal Dorset offers a warm welcome, especially to visiting yachtsmen. There are a number of membership options available including an Affiliate Membership category, specifically for boat owners from other yacht clubs. Additionally we have mooring spaces available in Portland Harbour - details in the 'Moorings' area. We also offer RYA training or own boat tuition through an RYA accredited training centre at a discount for our members.
To our existing and prospective members, as well as visitors, the Royal Dorset is open for you to enjoy. Should you require information on arranging a private function or group visit to the Club, please do not hesitate to contact us.
I hope you have enjoyed a memorable summer on the water and with the mild Autumn weather, hopefully you will be able to continue with further activities on the water.
Please note, new membership cards are available to collect from the Club House for 2017/18.
