Sailing / Yacht Club
The Up River Yacht Club was founded in 1936 and is situated at Hullbridge on the River Crouch about ten miles up river from Burnham. The clubhouse consists of a club room, bar, kitchen and changing rooms. The boat park adjoins the clubhouse and there is also a car park, both of which are reached by a private roadway which continues past the clubhouse to the river, giving direct access to a private slipway. Each member receives a key to the gate and changing rooms area and can therefore sail whenever the tide is right. Cruiser moorings are controlled by the club and may be rented on application. Membership is currently available for all types of sailing craft, with some mooring space available for sailing cruisers up to 24 feet in length.
