Based at Shotley Marina at the confluence of the Rivers Stour and Orwell,
Shotley Point Yacht Club welcomes all boaters to join our friendly club where you will find like-minded people with an interest in sailing the East Coast and beyond.
To encourage membership, we keep our fees very low (only £65 to Join, covers two adults and any children of the family, and £50 pa. there after); adopt a friendly, unstuffy and informal approach to sailing life, putting all our efforts into organising and running a full and varied programme of sailing, social and training events each year.
Our cruising events are designed so that most boat owning members can participate if they wish. Cruises are mainly to the many destinations around the East Coast and Thames Estuary, not involving long sails and so are ideal for family sailors, although there are usually one or two trips to Holland, Belgium or France each year. The emphasis is on the social side of things, a glass or two of wine aboard, yacht club meals and BBQ’s often feature.
