Welcome to the Dovey Yacht Club (DYC) / Clwb Hwylio Dyfi,
one of the premier sailing clubs on the Welsh coast located on the stunning Dyfi estuary.

At DYC we pride ourselves in offering Watersports for All.  We welcome new members to the Club for social, sailing and all watersports. Membership options and benefits are available on our membership pages.

We provide training courses to achieve RYA qualifications for youth sailing, adult sailing and powerboating. Dates are available on our events pages.

We are lucky enough to have Let's SUP paddle boading based here at the Club offering lessons and tours.


During 2024 we aim to support a number of charity initiatives including raising money for youth sailing, Wales Air Ambulance and Ordinary Lives.


During 2024 we have a comprehensive Sailing Programme, including training and racing, details of which can be viewed here: Rev 4 2024 sailing schedule

We offer Social only membership for those not involved in water based activity and have a wide variety of social events for all ages taking place throughout the year. To see what is coming up in more detail, and to book online please click HERE.

Club Boats

Thanks to a £24,000 grant we have invested in 4 new sailing dinghies in Aberdyfi - read all about it in the Cambrian news (28/07/22) here


Located directly by the beach and RNLI we have a comprehensive range of facilities, from dinghy parking to changing rooms and catering facilities to a wonderful lounge, bar and balcony.

We’re family orientated and have sailors racing from 8 years old (most juniors start sailing in Toppers) through to veterans who are 80 years old! Don’t worry if you don’t already own a boat, as we have a fleet of club boats you can use and we are also a fully accredited RYA training centre if you want improve your skills.

Interested in finding more about sailing, having a go and joining the club?  Contact us today by emailing us at  sailing@doveyyachtclub.org 'Hwylio am Hywl - Sailing for Fun'

As well as sailing, we have a social programme that runs throughout the year which includes suppers, quizzes, parties, free children's activities and informal drinks in the bar. What better place to bring your family and friends than DYC! We also offer private hire.

On this website you’ll find everything you need to know about DYC. However, the best way to get to know the Club is to come and visit us. You’ll find a warm welcome and we’d love to have a chat and explain how we can help you get out on the water and have fun messing about in boats.

We want to continue to develop a fun and team led club and rely on volunteers to do so. A volunteering commitment can be for a few minutes, hours, days or over a longer sustained period. If you are interested and want a chat please email sailing@doveyyachtclub.org.uk.
