Welcome to Cardiff Yacht Club

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.

We have about 300 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.

Fishing section

We have an active Motorboat section and also a very successful fishing section who fish the waters of the Bristol Channel. Many species of fish are caught in these waters. In the summer months you are likely to come across conger,mackerel, bass, pollack, bull, huss, smoothhound and many species of ray. While in the winter months it is an anglers paradise for cod and whiting with some cod reaching the 40lb mark.

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 here.
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.
