Welcome to the Isle of Man Yacht Club.

We’re an active club both on and off the water, with a comprehensive sailing programme offering something for sailors of all ages, abilities, interests and a healthy social scene for friends and families.

We run competitive racing series for mixed-fleet dinghies, First Class 8 sportsboats and yachts from April until September.

But it’s not all about racing: the club hosts regular cruises and fun sails for those who prefer to take their time and enjoy some company on the sea.

The club is an accredited RYA training centre offering a wide range of courses - both on and off the water - for children and adults alike. We’re proud to say that our past and present trainees have gone on to compete at National and International level, with many returning to become RYA instructors.

Our licensed bar, with a balcony overlooking the beautiful Chapel and Carrick bays, is the hub of our year-round social programme and the perfect place to enjoy a drink after a day’s sailing.

We may be a yacht club in name but our welcome and membership extends to all who enjoy watersports. Whether it be on RIBs, powerboats, kayaks or sailboards, all are assured of a warm welcome.

If you’d like to know more, just get in touch using the Contact page and we’ll do everything we can to get you out on the water.

Robert Floate,
