UTMYC is a recognised RYA Training Centre

Commodore's Welcome Message

Thank you for visiting the UTMYC. If you are unfamiliar with the club then let me take a moment to introduce ourselves to you.

Based at Sonning, right next to the Mill Theatre, we have our own clubhouse with bar and catering facilities, private grounds and moorings and we hold regular events for members both afloat and ashore. If you enjoy cruising in company with others there is ample opportunity for that either informally with friends or by joining one of the cruises that we arrange every year exploring all areas of the navigable Thames. We also have a varied social programme ranging from informal barbeques through to grander events.  A quick browse through our events list and photo gallery will give you a better insight into the range of our activities. 

We have about 200 members owning between them around 80 boats varying from 24 to 40 feet in length. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.  There is someone on hand each weekend during the boating season who would be happy to show you round, or you can obtain further information from our club secretary (

Non Tidal Cruising

Based centrally at Sonning, we are ideally sited for cruising down river to Henley, Marlow and Royal Windsor or up to and beyond the dreaming spires of Oxford. You may have to duck! There are regular weekend cruises with a relaxed BBQ and overnight stop, throughout the season.

Tidal Cruising

Although non-tidal based, members regularly cruise to London and the Continent, either in the company of friends or with the club. Both provide the comfort of cruising with others and a chance to give stress to the turbos. We can not always guarantee a Naval escort!


UTMYC is a registered RYA Training Establishment.  Throughout the winter months training is offered to members to obtain RYA Yachtmaster and Day Skipper qualifications.  First Aid, Radar and GMDSS is also offered. Our more experienced members will be happy to share their boat handling skills with those members new to boating.


As well as the informal evenings where members bring along their own food, the club organises barbeques, themed events and formal evenings in the clubhouse as well as at other locations. The social events are very popular and well supported - they offer a super evening in great company.
