With over 150 years of history as one of the oldest established East Coast clubs, Colne Yacht Club continues to inspire future generations to get afloat! Nestling on the waterfront in Brightlingsea, the clubhouse overlooks the harbour and estuary, ideally located for local or long distance sailing.
We run a varied programme of racing and cruising to encourage all levels of skills and types of boats. Through our RYA Training Centre we now offer both Keel Boat and Power Boat Training to members. The club has a variety of sailing programmes that include a Foxer Fleet, four Sonatas (owned by the club), and Brightlingsea One Design and Cruiser Fleets. We also run specialists such as Women on the Water, Blokes in Boats, Paddleboards, and Sonata Graduates alongside our well-established Cadet Section.
The club also has an active social programme running throughout the year.
