Welcome to Erith Yacht Club – the Premier Sailing Location on the tidal River Thames.  We are fortunate to be situated on a wide stretch of the river within easy distance of London and the M25. (How to find us)

The Clubhouse and bar are open on Wednesday lunchtimes, Thursday evenings and Sundays, when members are on hand to welcome you.  If you wish to visit at other times you are welcome to contact the Club using the ‘Contact EYC’ facility.

New members are always welcomed, and encouraged to become involved in all club activities. The club has a long tradition of "self-help", which we encourage everyone to adopt, both for mutual support, and for the development of the club as a whole.

Our aims are simple: to provide an affordable sailing venue to all ages and abilities, and to encourage the development of sailing skills through our in-house training and sailing programmes.

EYC has a new clubhouse with new workshops and storage facilities, pontoon, and training boats.  With this development, we can now offer enhanced sailing and training under the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) training scheme.


SATURDAY 20 MAY - Erith Yacht Club is providing Free Sailing Taster Sessions

as part of the RYA's National 'Push The Boat Out' Day scheme.

Sailing taster sessions are ideal for family members and individuals who want to try sailing or are thinking of returning to the sport.  All sessions are run with qualified instructors in one of our sailing dinghies.  At the end of the taster session, everyone is welcome to join us in the club bar for a drink and views over the river Thames.

We offer training courses for families, adults and young people who are new to sailing and a range of different membership options that allow you access to all the sailing sessions, racing events and social activities that take place during the year. For more information on what is available, and to view videos of EYC boats in action, click here.

Sailing and Racing

We have an active programme of cruiser and dinghy racing, including a number of Thames-based inter-club races. We also organise trips in company, whether a weekend on the River Medway, a night in St. Kats in the heart of London, or a shorter journey to a nearby pub or club for lunch.

Hamble Stars.

The Hamble Star Class Association at Erith exists to maintain, promote, and sail its historic fleet of Hamble Stars, believed to be the largest surviving fleet in the country.

If you are interested both in sailing wooden boats, and in their maintenance, this could be the perfect opportunity for you to take over the stewardship of one of these, to ensure their continuing survival, as well as having fun on the water!

Social Events

Our social programme is run in coordination with our sailing programme, and includes BBQ's, jazz and quiz nights, Comic Relief night, as well as Prize-Giving and the now legendary Christmas Dinner, complete with Pantomime!
