Haven Ports Yacht Club

Welcome to Haven Ports Yacht Club website

Whether your interest are racing, cruising, power-boating or simply social you will not be disappointed with what is on offer at the HPYC.

Our clubhouse, Lightvessel 87 offers a great atmosphere with excellent food and of course a friendly welcome from our Steward and his team.

I do hope that our web site helps you find what you are looking for at HPYC and look forward to meeting you at the club.

5 Great reasons to join us

  • Fabulous sailing

    Situated on the River Orwell one mile up from the Port of Felixstowe provides excellent access to all the East Coast, Thames Estuary and near Continent. including locally the Rivers Stour, Deben, Ore and Auld and the stunning Walton Backwaters. The whole area is steeped in sailing/boating history.

  • Active cruising section

    With cruises organised on a monthly basis spreading over weekends and longer the cruising section really does make the most of our location with trips down to the River Blackwater, and up to Lowestoft with all locations in between on the list.  We really do provide enjoyable cruising in company for our members.

  • Vibrant social

    The Lightship is the hub of our full and well supported social program providing a unique atmosphere in the bar and our function room. Talks, dinner dance, club suppers and fund raising for the RNLI form just a small example of what we organise during the winter months.
