Yachting & Yacht Racing

The Deben Yacht Club has many active yacht owners who participate in a range of races and organised events. as well as those who use the club’s facilities as a base from which to cruise the River Deben and beyond.

Our Sailing Programme indicates the races and ebb-tide cruises aimed specifically at yachts. Note that yachts are also welcome to join the dinghies in the regular club flotillas which venture downriver to a popular picnic spot or pub for lunch.

Yacht owners are able to keep tenders and outboards on our pontoons during the sailing season and move them to our dinghy park for the winter. The club has its own moorings which are suitable for smaller day-boats and we are represented on the Kyson Fairways Committee to help find suitable motor boat and sailing cruiser moorings if you have a bigger boat.

If you wish to ask anything about yacht cruising, mooring or racing at DYC please contact the Commodore.
