Royal Northumberland Yacht Club

Community Sailing Club for Blyth (Established - 1890)

This year marks the 125th year since the Royal Northumberland Yacht club came into being. Our Club house was originally a Lightship, LV 50 built for Trinity House in 1879, and is what we believe to be the oldest floating wooden lightship still afloat in the UK. As our Club ship she is the subject of a Heritage Lottery Fund bid; to preserve her in order that future generations can appreciate the craftsmanship involved in building such a substantial vessel.

We promote an active programme of yacht racing on the NE coast of England and further afield and cruising the NE coast to Scotland and the East coast of England.Our aim is to continue with sailing as an activity on the NE Coast and to encourage people of all ages to sample the activity and maybe buy a boat of their own.

600 members in total. Members vary from active sailors who race and cruise yachts to social members who use the facilities on the clubship namely bar and cooked meals.
