Yachts, Cruiser and Keelboats

Keelboat TCFs 2018

There are few pleasures in life quite like the stress-free environment of yacht sailing, being the master of your own destiny away from the pressures of the work. Better still, you get to enjoy it with friends and family.

The Isle of Man Yacht Club is home to an active sailing scene, whether you’re interested in racing or something a bit more serene. Our members are regularly seeking crew to join them, be it on a bay race or a placid jaunt round to Peel or Castletown. Contact the sailing@iomyc.com to find out more.

The club has an active racing scene with a number of First Class 8 sportsboats regularly taking part in our twice-weekly programme. It’s a mixture of coastal racing, bay racing and the more active short course windward-leeward racing.

Club racing is generally held on Wednesday evenings (first race 7pm) and Sunday mornings (first race 10am) throughout the sailing season, April to September

The IOMYC also boasts a vibrant cruising scene with organised events for members to cruise in company either around the coast of our beautiful Island or further afield.
