Who we are

Port Owen Yacht Club has approximately 300 members. There is an active sailing programme,and powerboat users are also catered for. The club is popular as a host for sailing events including keelboat and dinghy races, as we have the advantage of offering both a safe bay and a wide slow river on which to sail.

There is also a vibrant social life. The club is open:

  • Monday nights for quizzes, during the cooler months
  • Wednesday nights for pub grub
  • Friday nights for more formal meals and the Commodore‚Äôs speech
  • The first Saturday of each month for the monthly market
  • Various times in addition to the above, for a variety of events.
