Skegness Yacht Club welcomes new  members to share the great sailing to be had from this unique location.

Those who are interested in joining are asked to come over and meet with one of the friendly committee members who’ll talk you through the suitability of the club and the haven for your needs. An Application Form is then issued and on return will be submitted to the Management Committee at the next meeting. The prospective member will then be asked to attend an informal interview prior to a final decision being made on their membership application.

For new members with little experience of the area you’ll find that the club offers a friendly introduction to the intricacies of the channel and mooring in the river. As well as invites to ‘sail in company’ with other members on trips to local ports and clubs. More experienced members have sailed from Skegness across the North Sea to the continent, and even further afield.

All moorings are drying, in to mud, this suits certain keel types and boats better than others. A reasonable level of competence is required to safely navigate the channel and the local area, so please feel free to contact us to discuss the options available.

For further information please feel free to contact the Membership Secretary, Andy Dingle. Tel. 07894 669680 or email [email protected]

Please note the whole application process could take around 6 weeks. Just in case you’ve purchased a new boat and need somewhere to locate it.
