Welcome to the Royal Dart Yacht Club

The Royal Dart Yacht Club is located in Kingswear on the River Dart in Devon, UK.

The Club has a rich history and sailing tradition but remains thoroughly modern and informal.

Our goal is to enable members to pursue their interests across all aspects of sailing. We have a wide range of sailing-related activities plus a busy and friendly social programme.
