Information for visiting yachts

We welcome visiting yachts

The club is usually open 9am-5pm, 7 days a week during the season, and a bit later on Wednesday evenings. Our changing rooms have been fully refurbished in 2015. Please  sign the  Visiting Yachtmen book in the clubroom on arrival to become a temporary member for the duration of your stay entitling use of the bar, catering and shower facilities.

The river mouth can be a bit challenging. The link below to the East Coast Pilot website gives a useful chart of the entrance, but it is worth bearing in mind that the shingle can move and therefore please be alert when crossing the bar, and even recent charts may be out of date.

Visitors Moorings are provided by the Harbour Master (RF Upson & Co. 01728 453047, currently £5/night). The three visitors mooring buoys are in a line off the Martello Tower on the starboard hand when coming up river, and are the first buoys you come to in the vicinity. Each buoy rafts up to three yachts. You should not pick up any other buoy without the express permission of the Harbour Master. If you prefer to anchor the permitted area is inside the visitors mooring, nearer the Martello Tower. Anchoring is not allowed elsewhere in the stretch of the river where moorings are laid because there are numerous ground chains with many laid across the tide.  The Harbour Master is based in the workshop immediately North of the club car park.

Aldeburgh town centre is about 10-15 minutes walk from the club and offers a full range of shops and restaurants, as well at the famous fish and chips shops.

Please give the Secretary a ring on 01728 452562 if you would like further information.

We look forward to your visit!
