About the Devon Yawl Association

 

The Association was founded in 1979 and is affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association. It administers the Class as well as providing owners with the opportunity to meet, sail together and race. The highlight of the annual programme is the National Championships.

The membership is spread throughout the British Isles, and there is an international flavour with members in Europe and a presence in the USA.

A newsletter ‘The Yawl’ keeps members in touch, containing reports on regional and national Association events, technical information, and news items.

There are active fleets at Topsham SC, Yealm YC, Newport Pembrokeshire, on the river Dart at Dittisham, and Chichester harbour.
