Welcome to Newport Boat Club…

Thank you for being a member of Newport Boat Club. Our website aims to provide you with useful information about the club and the services we provide. We hope the following will help you to enjoy your membership of Newport Boat Club.

Located on the unrivalled Parrog, Nevern Estuary and Newport Bay, Newport Boat Club sits within the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, situated just off the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

The Club Administration Manager and Club Officers are always happy to assist with any questions you have. For a full list of club officers and members of staff, head over to our Meet the Team page.

 

History

Newport Boat Club is housed in an ancient warehouse dating back to the time when Parrog was a busy port. Five storehouses were built on this site between 1758 and 1825 and Newport Boat Club is housed in the one surviving building. It was purchased jointly by a group of Founder Club Members in 1976.

Our Ethos

We are proud that our Club has an inclusive, family friendly approach, which prides itself in welcoming both local and visiting members. In addition, our affordable suscription supports that inclusivity. We are always happy to receive visiting members of other sailing and/or boating clubs.

How we operate

Our affairs are controlled by a Management Committee, elected by the membership, whose authority is vested in the Club Administration Manager for the day-to-day running of the Club. The management committee is led by the Commodore, and there are sub- committees responsible for Sailing & Boating (including Celtic Longboat rowing), Bar management, Building matters, and Social events. Opening times for the Club House are in general the same as for the bar except that the Club is also open before and after races.

A list of our committee members is displayed in the clubhouse. They are more than happy to help with any questions and take on board any suggestions you may have for the Club.

Safety

Please remember that the sea should be treated with respect. An awareness of the dangers is essential.

You should familiarise yourself with the river channel at low tide, in order to identify rocks and shallows. You should also take account of the rate of flow of the river, particularly at spring tides and be aware of the dangers associated with the sandbar at the mouth of the river.

Tide times and local weather forecast can be found on the Newport Boat Club website, for those who prefer a hard copy, these are also available in the clubhouse.

It is always good practice to inform someone onshore of any plans you have to sail out of view from Newport.

The Club now has a WindGuru weather station where you can see the wind conditions in the bay. Go to https://beta.windguru.cz/station/624
