Training 2019 - Apply Now

Youth Evening Training starts this year (the first week of the summer term as usual) the week commencing the 29 April.

We plan to run beginner and intermediate youth courses on both a Monday and Wednesday evening, and a more advanced course on a Thursday evening. However places cannot be guaranteed and your are recommended to apply early. When you apply you will have the option to select either a Monday or a Wednesday for intermediate and beginner course however when we review the applications we will assess the ability of applicants to try and fit them into the correct group with matched abilities. So please be as flexible as possible with the two days as it may be that we offer you a different day to that which you have applied for. It is very difficult to ensure the quality of training if we have mixed ability groups.

The closing date for the Youth Evening Training is Sunday the 3 March.

Adult Evening courses

Will run on a Tuesday evening again from 5.30 / 6.00pm. The first course starts on the 7 May, with a second course starting in June / July.

Please apply early if you are interested as this will help us to plan better, although we will accept applications up to two weeks before the course start dates.

2019 Racing Schedule

Sun 6th Jan 2019 by Richard
INTRODUCTION

Mumbles Yacht Club runs an extensive racing programme the whole year round.

Racing is split into various series - Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer and Evening, with catamaran and dinghy classes.

Throughout the summer, racing is weekly (or as weekly as possible depending on whether the sea decides to show up or not). The Spring series is scheduled as often as possible when tide and light allow. During the other series', it drops down to fortnightly.

Racing is open to all classes, all competitors, all levels. If you're unsure of what to do, come along and ask someone, we're a helpful bunch and our aim is to get as many boats on the water as possible.

There are perpetual trophies for the overall winners of each series, prizes for the youth champions, and a presentation evening where everything is given out the first Saturday in October.

Annual Events

The Gower Challenge is a weekend dedicated to long distance racing, starting with a long distance race to Oxwich and back, and then concluding with long distance races 'around the cans'.

It's a head to head between the cat and dinghy fleets!

There also a Mumbles Yacht Club Open Regatta, and a CYRC, which is a Youth regatta, and part of a regional series.

This year we are proud to be hosting the 2019 Byte National Championship

Push the boat out and Bart's Bash also make an appearance at the start and end of the season.

Championship Events

Mumbles Yacht Club has also hosted a number of National, European and world championships in the club, the more recent ones including:

  • 2008: F16 World Championship
  • 2014: Dart 18 European Championship
  • 2015: 4000 National Championship
