The Colne Yacht Club

Inspiring Generations Afloat

One of the finest Yacht Clubs on the East Coast of England, the Colne Yacht Club, based at Brightlingsea near Colchester in Essex sports the finest views out over Brightlingsea Creek,  the River Colne and the Blackwater Estuary.

Situated at the top of the Hard in Brightlingsea Creek, and with its own private floating jetty and launching ramp reaching out to the low water line, the club offers easy, clean access to the water. There is parking space under the front of the club for loading and unloading and short stays of 12 hours or less.

In the club house on the ground floor there are Ladies and Gents showers and upstairs there are friendly bars and a fine restaurant
