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’s speech
- The first Saturday of each month for the monthly market
- Various times in addition to the above, for a variety of events.
POYC extends a hearty welcome to members of the following Yacht Clubs who share reciprocity with us.
