The Royal Dart Yacht Club is situated in the picturesque Devonshire village of Kingswear. We are blessed with stunning views down the River Dart to Dartmouth Castle and beyond to the open sea and across the river to the vibrant town of Dartmouth. With easy access to the water, 150 years of rich sailing tradition and a lively social calendar, you won’t be disappointed if you call in to see us.

Thinking of visiting or joining?


The aim of the RDYC is to provide a warm and welcoming environment for sailors, their families and friends. We cherish a high reputation for quality, locally sourced food available in a casual bar and terrace environment as well as in a more formal lunch and dining tradition.

We believe we are a favourite destination for sailors visiting the South West, racers and cruisers alike. We offer a comprehensive training programme for sail and motor, open to members and non-members.

We offer the region’s premier junior sailing programme and are proud of our close association with the Royal Dart Youth Sailing Trust which provides access to sailing for local young people.

The RDYC is an active supporter of the local environment and has an ambition to safeguard and protect the marine environment.
