Welcome to the RWYC

The Royal Welsh Yacht Club is a friendly, welcoming club with a varied programme of sailing, rowing, walking and social events throughout the year. The club members can apply for a warrant to fly our defaced ensisgn and the RWYC’s flag is flown by members cruising in the Americas, Scotland, the Hebrides, Shetland, Scandinavia, Atlantic Spain and the Mediterranean as well as the cruising grounds closer to home.

The clubhouse is in the medieval town walls of Caernarfon overlooking the Menai Strait. Members of reciprocal clubs, and members of other RYA recognised clubs, whilst sailing or rowing in the Menai Strait, or visiting Caernarfon, are most welcome to call in and experience a warm Welsh welcome.

The RWYC organises cruises in company to destinations near and far, and we host one of the many races of the Menai Strait Regatta. There is an active coastal rowing contingent who enter many of the races organised by the Welsh Sea Rowing Association (WSRA) and also the Great River Race in London.

During the winter we run a varied programme of lectures, special suppers, formal dinners and traditional Christmas and New Year events, as well as the key social occasions of the seasons such as the St David’s Day Dinner, Craning In and Craning Out Suppers, the Annual Dinner Dance.
