Cardiff Yacht Club is a thriving yacht club that was originally founded in Cardiff in 1900. Today, the club is centrally located on the edge of Cardiff Bay, overlooking the Wetlands Nature Reserve, with panoramic views over the Bay and the Bristol Channel beyond. View map.

With almost 400 members, the club boasts a large membership of committed keen individuals that make the club a success. We have a wide range of experience from those with decades of experience sailing all over the world to those who are new to boating. The club has two active sections, a yacht sailing section and a dinghy sailing section. Additionally we have lively groups of fishermen and motorboats of all sizes.

Yacht section.
We meet every Thursday evening in the club bar from 20:00, and in Summer months sail beforehand from 17:30 either within the Bay or out in the Bristol Channel as the tide allows. We have regular cruises in company and other events for members to enjoy such as the Blue Book Challenge. Click here to see where members have sailed to recently.

Dinghy Section.

The dinghy section is run by a variety of dinghy sailors who meet in the club bar on Wednesdays from 20:00 after sailing from 17:30. The dinghy section has it’s own website

Over the years the dinghy section has enjoyed a healthy relationship with Cardiff University, whose sailing club enjoy the use of CYC and share the dinghy section compound. During the term time, various RYA courses are offered to members and the University Magno, Argo, Pico, Buzz and Firefly fleet can be seen regularly out on the bay. More details here.

We have over 280 yachts and motorboats permanently moored on either our trot moorings or pontoons in the freshwater bay. There are over 50 dinghies in the club and we have a fully equiped boat yard with 2 boat hoists.
