By road (Check tide times)
The nearest major town to us is Colchester which can be reached from north or south by the A12. From central Colchester take the B 1025 signposted to Mersea. Having crossed the Strood (the causeway that joins Mersea Island to the mainland but may be flooded at high tide) bear right and take the main road through West Mersea village until you reach the waterfront. Continue - leaving the Victory and Coast Inn pubs on your right - until you see The WMYC clubhouse on the right hand side opposite the public car park. (click here for map)
Colchester is well served by frequent rail services from London and Norwich, a taxi from the station to the clubhouse will take approximately 20-30 mins. There is also a regular bus service to the Island. (click for train information)
From the Bench Head bouy proceed to the Nass beacon. The Mersea quarters are reached from the Naas by a well marked channel. At all states of the tide we recommend that you follow the lines of moorings as this clearly indicates where the deep water is. Moorings are usually available for visitors for an over night stay - contact our launchman on Marina Channel 37 (M), the call sign is YC1 or on mobile number 07752 309435.
