Why join BMYC?

BMYC is an active and friendly club with a strong tradition for yacht racing and cruising around the Sussex coast and further afield around the UK, Europe and across the Atlantic.  It’s not entirely about sailing though, we have a great social calendar.

In October 2015 we relocated to a new, floating club house – our first permanent home since our inception in the 1970s.  So, in addition to a year-round racing and cruising calendar, members will now enjoy a fantastic new facility, including the Clubroom area, a comfortable and contemporary bar, galley, lounge and sun-deck setting in the heart of Brighton Marina. As a full member you have a 20% discount on food and drink prices.

All this for a full single annual membership of just £185!  See below for full costs.

If you have any questions about membership, please contact our membership director, Janice Dykes, via email on membership@bmyc.uk or telephone 01273 818711 or 07437 769033.

If you are interested to know more about the structure of the club, copies of the Memorandum and Articles of Association and By-Laws are available to view here.
