Visitor Information…

Redclyffe welcomes visitors during the boating season and, although we have no dedicated visitors buoys, we will always try to find a vacant berth for an overnight stay or longer period. There may be space alongside for bilge keel boats up to 30’ on weekdays or else the Officer of the Day will do their best to allocate a fore and aft mooring nearby. Unfortunately, due to space limitations, we cannot accomodate visiting multihull vessels.

The Club cannot reserve berths in advance but if you are approaching and wish to check on availability please contact the Officer of the Day (Tel: 01929 551227 or call Redclyffe Yacht Club on VHF Ch.80) between 0900 and 1700. Otherwise, approach the pontoon at the downstream end of the Clubhouse, taking particular care if the tide is flooding, and tie up on the yellow lined loading berth where somebody will come to help you.

Many boats visit us each year and often return so do come and look us up and we look forward to welcoming you.

visitor facilities

Visiting skippers are enrolled as temporary members and can then enjoy the facilities of the Club, including showers, water and electricity, if berthed alongside. Wi-Fi is also available; please ask the Officer of the Day for details.

There are many pleasant walks and local tourist attractions within easy distance of the Club. Wareham town, which is just a pleasant walk along the riverside path, offers a good range of shops with a street market on the Quay on Saturdays. There are also a good variety of places to eat and drink.

Buses stop in town and run regularly to Poole and Swanage and along the Jurassic coast as far as Exeter. The Wareham mainline station is close by and a steam train service often runs from Norden to Swanage.
