Hastings Motor Boat and Yacht Club

HMBYC is a small friendly, family orientated boating club situated at the Eastern end of Hastings Old Town at Rock-a-Nore.

We cater for a wide variety of boating and water orientated activities including power boating, sailing, canoe/kayaking, angling, water skiing, surfing and even scuba diving.

Situated right on Rock-A-Nore beach, it’s no surprise we have a large family membership which, as well as enjoying our unique coastline, make the most of the club’s social facilities whether taking to the water, shore-fishing, or simply chilling on the beach. No walking miles back along the seafront for that cup of tea, cold beer, snack or ice-cream but just a quick nip up a single flight of stairs. However you might not want to rush back down to the beach too quickly but instead prefer to make the most of our balcony terrace – perfect!

We place a great emphasis on providing appealing activities to all our younger members.

It’s a simple logic; the children of today will be running the club – their club – in years to come.

Boat owners have access to their boats 24/7 365 with no restriction on when they are able to go afloat or return. We don’t have a boatman to say whether you can take to the water or not, it is entirely up to your discretion.
