Rye Yacht Club - Friendly, Informal, Welcoming
The sailing season at Rye Yacht Club commences early in October and finishes in mid to late April. Most Club racing is on Sundays, and there are concentrated series of events over the Christmas - New Year and Easter holiday periods.
The Club sailing program includes a variety of courses and trophy series, usually with multi-division starts. Both VYC and Club handicapping are used.
The Club also supports and encourages social sailing for people not wishing to compete in the racing program.
For those new to sailing, Club members are always willing to provide friendly assistance and advice on request.
Rye Yacht Club welcomes women to be involved in all aspects of the Club. If you would like to be involved, please let us know.
The Club is hosting Discover Sailing Days for the public to come along and learn more about and try sailing, on 13 November, 8 and 26 January. To register to come along to the events, please go to Discover Sailing and search for Rye. You can also download the Discover Sailing App for your mobile device.
