Welcome to the online home of Benfleet Yacht Club, a large and friendly club situated along the shore of Benfleet Creek, on the northern coast of Canvey Island, Essex.

Our club offers great opportunities for dinghy and cruiser sailing, plus coastal rowing. Dinghy sailing and coastal rowing mainly take place in the sheltered waters of Benfleet Creek, whilst for yacht cruising, the creek provides a gateway to the Thames Estuary and beyond. We have a large number of tidal moorings for yachts and our on-shore storage for both yachts and dinghies are second to none.

Complementing our sailing programme, we have a superb clubhouse, where the bar is open lunchtime and evenings 7 days a week, for members to meet up for a drink, a chat and a bite to eat, plus we provide an active social and entertainments programme throughout the year. 

Please feel free to explore this website to find out more about us. We welcome new members: please visit our 
Membership page for further details.
