About us

RSYC, one of the oldest yacht clubs in the UK, and is renowned for its friendly and welcoming ambience. Visiting yachtsmen and motorboating guests can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of our pontoon or a mooring overlooking areas of wetlands with an abundance of wildlife, and views out to the Solent. If you are lucky you may see the sea eagles, kites or marsh harriers, or our resident seals. We have all the facilities for visitors and a welcoming bar and restaurant area to relax and dine. Our bosun offers an all-year-round water taxi service.



The origins of the Royal Southampton Yacht Club go back to the West Quay Amateur Regatta Club in 1858, and which was renamed the Southampton Amateur Regatta Club in 1862. Frequent races were held in the waters opposite the old West Quay, before the extensive development of the Southampton waterfront.
