Aldeburgh Yacht Club situated on the Suffolk coast is a large and thriving club catering for all aspects of the sport of sailing. Located between the sea and the River Alde one mile south of the town of Aldeburgh the Club is able to organise racing on the river and, for dinghy open meetings and certain other events, on the sea.
There is active racing at weekends from April to December with both keelboat and dinghy classes and a more frequent programme, particularly amongst the youth and junior classes, during August. There is also an active cruiser fleet with organised events both locally, in the Thames Estuary and further afield. Members also own a number of motor boats and RIBs/sports boats of various sizes.
Classes sailed at the Club are the Dragon and Swallow (three man keelboats) the Squib, Flying Fifteen and Loch Long (two man keelboats), 2.4M (single-handed mini keelboat capable of being sailed by the disabled), RS400 (fast asymmetric two man dinghy), Laser II, Wayfarer and Lapwing (two man dinghies), Laser (single-handed dinghy) and Mirror, Topper, Junior Lapwing & Optimist (junior classes).
