Our Sailing Activities and Facilities


Nestling on the waterfront in Brightlingsea, Essex the Clubhouse overlooks the harbour and estuary. Ideally located for local or distance sailing, we run a varied programme of racing and cruising to encourage all levels of skills and boats, and have an active social programme running throughout the year. Funded by the National Lottery via Sport England, Colne Yacht Club was the first UK club to offer sail training and the use of keelboats to its members.
Colne Yacht Club is one of the oldest and best established on the East Coast, with its origins stretching back to the 1870s.
Brightlingsea is a popular destination for visiting clubs who enjoy the panoramic views from the Club’s comfortable restaurant, bars and balcony. Our shower facilities are available 24/7.
