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.


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.

Wednesday Sailing

View full width

Alan Cooper and friends have organised the first Wednesday Sail of the Year.   Time approx. 12pm as set out below.  The aim is to sail fortnightly so try and support this venture so Alan et al have an idea of numbers of those who can attend.


24th April – Wednesday

Weather possibly 10 knots S.  LW Midday

Suggest you get ready for about midday.  We have all afternoon and tide will be up.

I will be down all day, see how it goes.  Will launch RIB but will need help with recovery.

If you want to come ashore we can leave the boats on the moorings and use the RIB until the pontoon is available.  I will be at the Club early in the day.  Alan C.

Next Sundowner

Friday April 26th at 6pm. There are rumours of a barbeque...

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!

Don't forget, the next Brass Monkey race is taking place this Sunday. Briefing at 10 and first race at 11. Make sure you come down and support the racing and sailing!
