Social Activities

Our key strength is the social network that welcomes people from all boating disciplines to share experiences and opportunities. 

Meet people with similar interests, socialize and network with other people either doing the things you are interested in or wanting to have a go at the things you do is how we operate. We bring people together interested in all types of watersports. 

Find out about other water users in the York area and what they are doing via our Social Networking.

YCTC members stay connected throughout the year by holding monthly social meetings. These are held on the first Tuesday evening of every month from 20:00, in the upstairs room at The Royal Oak, 18 Goodramgate, York YO1 7LG. A Google Maps Link here

Upcoming Events

4th June 2024 - Maintaining a Lookout by Howard Oddenhill.
Coregs are clear enough, perhaps ...

This short talk will hopefully provoke discussion. It was originally written for a single-handed community during Covid, but also covers long distance sailing in more typical leisure boats with crews of up to 5 sailors. The talk discusses identifying and managing risks from other vessels and from our own limitations, watchkeeping patterns, and aids to being seen and detecting others.

Howard sails a Sadler 29, currently moored in Chichester Harbour. He mostly sails the Bristol and English channels and has ventured to the Azores and beyond, single handed and crewed. He is an Ocean Yachtmaster.
2nd July 2024 - Monthly Social
