Cardiff Yacht Club is a traditional yacht club fully equipped to handle all the needs of recreational boat users.
The club is located in the most desirable part of Cardiff Bay, within walking distance of shops, restaurants and theatres. The view from the clubhouse bar is stunning and we have a panoramic view of the sailing within the bay and out over the sea to Somerset. The clubhouse is a purpose built building constructed for us in 2001 and has 2 bars, a large function room, training room, workshop, WiFi, kitchen and toilets with wet changing rooms with the warmest of showers. There is a covered elevated terrace and upstairs open patio and BBQ area. Also we have a further BBQ area on the ground floor where we hold our famous hog roasts. The kitchen serves food at the weekends and you will not find a better curry at any other yacht club. The car park is large enough to not worry about a space.
We have over 280 boats in the club that are located on either trot moorings or floating pontoons. These boats are secure in the sheltered bay and because the water is fresh water, it is normal for boats to remain in the water all year. We have an enthusiastic group of volunteers who are at the club most days maintaining and expanding the clubs moorings and facilities. There is a drinking water supply to the pontoons.
Security at CYC is taken very seriously with many measures to keep the area safe. The area is fenced off from the surrounding area and entry to the main car park (both in and out) is via key fob operated security gates. The area beyond the car park is protected by a high fence and is also locked at all times. As the club is an active club so there are always members coming and going.
