About Us

We are Parkstone Yacht Club – an active community of enthusiastic sailors located in the heart of the beautiful Poole Harbour on England’s South Coast.

Our Club – whose members span all ages and generations - has a proud 125-year history and enjoys an enviable stature and reputation within the world of competitive sailing.

So! What makes Parkstone YC so special in our eyes? 
We are particularly proud of our rare combination of a new, state of the art club house and a modern, well-equipped yacht haven with berthing for more than 200 boats. A warm Parkstone welcome will always await visiting yachtsmen.
We also like to think of ourselves as a thriving club. We have a strong, multi-generational 3,000 membership. Members with cruising yachts are renowned for flying our flag near and far. Our highly competitive fleets of dinghies and keel boats - and the sailors who rise through our ranks thanks to our busy racing calendar – often achieve national and international success.
Our superb facilities and our cadre of expert, experienced members have given us a reputation for successfully staging major national and international events attracting sailors from around the world.
Ours is a yacht club for people in love with the joy of sailing. Not for nothing is our motto: “Bringing sailing to life.”
