Welcome to the West Mersea Yacht Club, established in 1899 and one of the premier Yacht Clubs on the East Coast.

We run a full racing and cruising programme throughout the season, and our bar and restaurant service is open to members and visiting yachtspeople seven days a week. Members are conveyed to their boats by two Club launches that serve the Mersea moorings, with the launch service again being seven days a week in the season.

In normal times! our bar and restaurant service is open to members and visiting yachtspeople seven days a week, however in the ‘current emergency’  and only for 2020, sadly we will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

We will be reopening our Clubhouse to members on Wednesday 2nd December, the first day that we are allowed by law to do so. Whilst the Government’s current ’emergency regulations’ have forced some changes onto the way that we will be permitted to operate, members can still enjoy the Club’s excellent food and warm welcome by themselves, in household couples or in ‘single household groups’.

Sadly at the moment we are not allowed by law to serve any alcoholic drinks unless with a ‘substantial meal’, but members can of course still come in at lunchtime and enjoy a coffee, or a wide variety of soft drinks, with no requirement to purchase a meal. 

I ask all members to continue to support our Club in these difficult times. By lunching or dining at the Club, you will not only have a first class meal, a good choice of ‘real ales’ and a selection of carefully chosen wines, but more importantly you will be helping your own Club to come through the current unprecedented situation and into the better times that will surely lie ahead. We are not just ‘customers’ of an ordinary business. It’s our Club. We own it. Let’s use it through the winter, to keep it alive and thriving!

Best wishes

Tim Wood
