Joining the Royal Solent Yacht Club

Thank you for your interest in membership of the Royal Solent Yacht Club.

The Royal Solent is proud to have a reputation for warm hospitality, good food, a relaxed atmosphere and some of the best views of the Western Solent. You don’t have to be a sailor to join us - the Club’s extensive social programme offers something for everyone, whatever the age, both on and off the water.

Your application should either be supported by a proposer and a seconder who have been members for not less than two years, or if you don’t know two such members, we will be very happy to arrange for you to visit the Club to meet with a Club Official. Please refer to the Guidance Notes on the back of the Membership Application Form for full details.

Following receipt of a completed application form, applications for membership are posted on the Club’s Notice Board for 14 days before passing through the Club’s Committee system at the end of the month.

We are keen to encourage families to the Club and our Family subscription offers membership to any number of children under 18 for £1 when parents join as a couple.

Member Benefits

Additional member benefits include 10% off food and 17.5% off drinks (excluding private and official Club functions), plus an extra 5% off drinks during happy hour on Fridays from 6pm to 7pm!

Members also benefit from discounts of 25% off Wightlink and 15% off Red Funnel ferry travel.

Royal Solent members may also take advantage of the Club's reciprocal arrangements with 60 yacht clubs in the UK, including London, and also overseas.

Further benefits of membership (subject to additional fees) include the use of the Club's car park, dinghy park, moorings and Lasers.
