Welcome to the Essex Yacht Club

Originally founded in 1890, and situated about a quarter of a mile east of picturesque Leigh Old Town, the Essex Yacht Club is a family club and is particularly proud of its Cadet section, with over 100 cadets. It’s unique feature is its headquarters – a ship. HQS Wilton is a conversion of the first ever glassfibre warship, the Mine Hunter HMS Wilton. An extensive sailing program runs from Easter to October, with races and events that cater for beginners in Optimists through to high performance dinghies and Cruisers. Members can store their boats on Club moorings or our own boat racks, adjacent to the club. There are numerous social events throughout the year, from formal dinners to summer barbeques, providing entertainment for sailing and non-sailing members.
