Holywood Yacht Club

Holywood Yacht Club is a small friendly and active sailing club which caters for all levels and abilities. Founded in 1862, it is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Ireland. The sailing season runs from April to September during which there is regular racing and sailing with a rescue boat on hand, training days and an annual Regatta. Members are currently sailing Wayfarers, Picos, Toppers, Mirrors, Holywood Sharpies and Lasers. The club has a number of Toppers available for hire to members.
The club welcomes new members of all ages and is well known for being family-friendly and down-to-earth. Throughout the year members organize an entertainments programme which centres on the club house bar and hall with their fabulous views over Belfast Lough.
