Ilfracombe Yacht Club was formed in 1962 to promote sailing and motor cruising in the Bristol Channel. The original club members met in the skittle ally of the Pier Hotel and then only in the summer. In 1972 they moved into part of the old Seaman’s Bethel and the club as we know it was born.  The success of our club is a legacy to all our members — past, present, and future.  The Club sits within a unique environment with stunning views across the Bristol Channel and is justly proud of its reputation within the Bristol Channel Yachting Conference as one of the most friendly in the Bristol Channel.

The Club is always pleased to welcome visiting yachts and provides changing rooms for men and women, toilets and showers.

The town boasts many clubs, but the Ilfracombe Yacht Club experience offers much more than sailing and is truly one of a kind.
