About PYC

This page is to give a quick overview of our club, but feel free to explore the rest of the site or contact us for more information.

At a Glance:

  • We are a club of around 140 members, ranging from people in their 20s to their 80s
  • We own two yachts
  • RelaX of Phoenix is an X-Yachts X.40 (7 berths)
  • Quartette is a Westerly Oceanquest 35 (6 berths)
  • We offer our members Cruising, Racing and  Training (both RYA and informal)
  • Members pay an annual membership fee and then a fee for each day they sail
  • There are no limits on the number of days you can sail in a year, subject to availability
  • Suitably qualified and experienced members are assessed as club skippers, and can then book the yachts as skipper.
  • Any member (skipper or crew) can join an advertised club sail.
We run a range of club sails from our base in Haslar Marina, Gosport; from single days on the Solent, to cross channel trips and extended cruises, where different crews join the boat for a week at a time as a relay. Our summer cruises have been all over Europe. In 2022 Quartette will cruise Northern France and the Channel Islands for 9 weeks and RelaX will cruise down to the West Country. Our Club-organised programme of extended cruises, racing and training is finalised each year in the autumn, and published on this site each year.

Maybe you would like to try a Trial Sail to meet a few of our members & sail one of our boats, for more information see here.

We are particularly keen to recruit new members who are able to sail during the week, when our yachts are less busy. Many of our members are recently (or not so recently!) retired, but we also have members still in employment who have the flexibility to sail on weekdays, often because their job means they work on weekends. So if you are an air traffic controller, fireman, lorry driver, nurse, teacher… we are a great way to spend time when everyone else is working! It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced sailor, but without your own boat, or a complete beginner wondering whether you would enjoy sailing, we would love to tell you more about our club. Please fill in the contact form below and we will be in touch.

Thank you for your interest in Phoenix Yacht Club!
