Welcome to the DYC

Our Clubhouse, with its spectacular views of the River Dart, offers various facilities including a well stocked bar, an extensive menu, free Wi-Fi and computer access, lockers & showers and we also welcome dogs on leads & children.
If you fancy eating with us in the evening it is not always necessary to reserve a table, but during high season or if you are a party of 4 or more it might be worth ringing our Bar on 01803 832305 to book yourselves a table.
We have no Joining Fee and our Membership Rates are very reasonable. Members have access to our Junior Sailing and Cruising-in-Company Programmes, free use of our Toppers and canoes, the ability to borrow our Jeanneau Cap 400 motor boat, reduced prices on our RYA Training Courses and of course the chance to get to know a group of like minded people.

Club Day Sail
The weather wasn't quite what we had hoped for, but this was an excellent day nevertheless.Eleven of us (Christine, Terry, Fiona, Jo & Sarah; Jane & Will; Kate & Mike; Sheelah and Ralph) took two boats (Haven and Altimate) out into Start Bay where the Met Office's strong wind warning proved accurate.The highest gust seen on Altimate was 28 knots and the highest SOG: 8.7 knots.Despite this less than gentle introduction, everybody including the novice sailors, were exhilarated rather than frightened.
