Welcome to York RI Sailing Club

YRISC is a small and family-friendly dinghy sailing club based on the River Ouse in York, UK.

Our main activity is sail racing, but we welcome everyone whether they want to race or not. We are an RYA accredited training center and run an RYA sailing course each year. In addition each year we run a novice racing series on top of our full race program which is also open to all members, however experienced.

You don’t need a boat to join YRISC. We believe that starting as a crew for an experienced member is one of the best ways to learn to sail. If you have sailing experience, or once you have gained some as a crew, we have boats that members can use for a fee of just £1 per half day.

Everybody gets a warm welcome, including visitors. If you’d like to know more, come down on a Sunday during racing season (check out the sailing program on the Racing page). Bring a change of clothes and a packed lunch and we’ll most likely get you out sailing if you want us to!
