Yarmouth Harbour Moorings

All moorings in Yarmouth Harbour for both Friday and Saturday* nights must be booked via the Regatta online booking form on the Royal Solent Yacht Club wesbite. Please also book your tender or accommodation vessel at the same time.

Both walk ashore moorings with electric hook-up and a limited number of finger berths with electric hook-up may be booked in advance.

*If you wish to book additional nights, please book these extra nights direct with the harbour (tel. 01983 760321) and mention that you are taking part in the Taittinger RSYC Regatta.

The booking fee entitles you to a short stay (max 4hrs) on the Sunday to enable you to attend the prize giving; all moorings must be vacated by 17:00 on Sunday 18th July 2021 latest.

Please contact the Sailing Office on 01983 760256 to enquire about moorings for boats more than 18m in length.


Social Events

In these uncertain times, it is not yet known what will be possible in terms of social events in July. The situation will be reviewed regularly and social events will be added to the online booking system when it is appropriate to do so.

The Royal Solent Yacht Club will certainly do what it can in terms of shoreside hospitality and everything that the Club does will be in accordance with legislation, guidance and the advice received at the time.
