Welcome to the West Mersea Yacht Club, established 1899 and one of the premier Yacht Clubs on the East Coast.
We run a full racing and cruising programme throughout the season, and Members are conveyed to their boats on local moorings by two Club launches, with the launch service being available seven days a week in the summer. Now that Government ‘social distancing’ rules have been relaxed, we are pleased to make the launch service also available to genuine visiting yachtspeople, i.e. those from boats normally berthed elsewhere and which are temporarily visiting West Mersea. Call ‘YC One’ (pronounced ‘why see one’) on VHF Channel 37 for assistance.
We are proud to be one of the very few Yacht Clubs in the country that is open 365 days of the year. Our bar and restaurant service is open to members and visiting yachtspeople seven days a week, with the Club offering a dedicated lunch menu and a popular selection of ‘roasts’ on Sundays. Evening dining, with a full menu plus ‘Chef’s Specials’ changing regularly, is available on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Service is also available at the tables outside on our Club lawn, with spectacular views of the Mersea harbour creeks. There are not many Yacht Clubs on the East Coast that face west and so have a full view of the setting sun, and a ‘sundowner’ on our Club lawn cannot be beaten in good weather!
I look forward to seeing fellow Members in the Club, on the Club lawn, or in the launch on the way to their boats, and to welcoming visitors to our lovely Club.
