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.
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. To join online click on the WebCollect button above.
I look forward to meeting you in the Club.
