Welcome to the DYC
As visiting yachtsmen, guests or prospective members you can be sure of a warm welcome at 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.
Philip Watts our resident Chef has earned a well deserved reputation for serving great food, so do come in and join us for lunch or dinner. 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.
Our members are a varied crowd, some live locally whilst others live miles away and just like spending time in the area and whilst many members own boats, many don’t.
We have no Joining Fee and our Membership Rates are very reasonable. Full 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. Application forms are available on this Web site and if you have any questions about membership phone the Bar or come into the Club.
I look forward to meeting you in the Club.
The club sit on top fleet has grown to 11 boats.Four doubles and 7 singles.If you want to try one just get in touch with us. More?
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.
