Barry Yacht Club opens its doors to ‘social membership’

By Contributed Item in Local People

No boat? No worries! There are few establishments on Barry Island where folk are able to enjoy a drink and take in a beautiful Channel view.

Barry Yacht Club, in an enviable position overlooking the harbour and Jackson’s Bay, is one of them, but these pleasures have until now only been available to full, boat owning or associate members, or to members of the public who have visited the club for an event.

For the first time in its 89 years, Barry Yacht Club has opened the door to social membership. On a recent Friday, a new social members’ get together was attended by around 60 people, a mix of prospective and current members. The atmosphere in the club was buzzing!

New members discovered the benefits of becoming a BYC member which include preferential bar and ticket prices for events at the club… and those views!
