About Us

About Us


The Millbeach Marine Club is located on the North shore of the River Blackwater (what many consider to be the finest sailing area on the East coast) some four miles down river of Maldon town and quay.

Membership is currently limited to 150. As our name implies, the club caters for most forms of water craft from dinghies to sailing cruisers, although at present we are unable to accept motor boats or jet skis. The river from Osea Island (a mile downriver from the club) dries out on each tide. Most moorings in the Club’s block have water 2½ to 3 hours either side of high tide.

The club has a history stretching back to 1967 and owns its ½-acre site.

Our club fees are probably the best value on the river because our members carry out most, if not all, of the improvement and routine maintenance work which is achieved by organised working parties during the winter period. These are popular in that they offer the opportunity for new members to meet the ‘old hands’. The club has a reputation for being very friendly and informal and unlike other clubs we do not place demands on involvement other than the expectation to support the work parties and odd social event. Some boating events are organised but these are as much by popular demand as hardy annuals. The Club has quite a number of competent sailors who are more than willing to help the less experienced, especially when venturing out on the river for the first time.
