We are a small family club with around 200 members situated on the estuary of the river Humber near Cleethorpes.
We welcome a broad range of boats to our club including WINDSURFERS, DINGHIES, YACHTS, RIBs etc. For more information about individual sections within the club please browse around the site.
In addition to launching and secure storage for dinghies/trailer boats, we have swinging mooring for yachts and powered craft, gantries for lifting larger boats in and out of the water, changing rooms and importantly a BAR!
Humber Mouth Yacht Club is committed to introducing beginners, especially youngsters, to the sport of sailing. To this end we have a large and very active Cadet section as well as an RYA recognised sailing school and a number of club owned dinghies to learn in.
With the kind of facilities often only found at larger clubs and with a very reasonable subscription, we think we are the best value for money club in the area...as well as the friendliest.

It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of honorary member Rowley Walker. Rowley was a founder member of Humber Mouth and as such contributed a great deal towards making the club what it is today. It is hard for us to imagine just how much work there is involved in turning a Second World War gun emplacement which is full of sand into one of the best sailing facilities on this part of the coast. Rowley's legacy is clear to see as his son and now grandchildren continue to be active in the sport which he loved. Our thoughts are with Rowley's family at this difficult time.

6 intrepid sailors set off from Humber Mouth YC on the evening of Saturday 25th May for an overnight passage to Wells. The two Dave’s (Maynard and Knight) where first away aboard Foxglove followed an hour or so later by Ian Clegg and Stu Patterson in Threstral and Peter and Adam Sheldrick in Carisma.
A gentle breeze pushed the boats along for the first couple of hours but as darkness began to fall the wind dropped and on went the “iron mainsails”. A huge full moon illuminated the smooth sea guiding the boats south. The “Daves” took an inshore route inside the huge Lincs Offshore Wind farm whilst the other boats took the more traditional seaward route. The wind filled in later in the night allowing sails to be employed and the peace and quite of night at sea to be truly appreciated. As the sun rose the boats where closing in on their destination with a large following sea making the last few hours a little uncomfortable. The northerly winds had whipped up the sea over the bar at the entrance to Wells making for an interesting entry. Once through the rough water the pretty town of Wells-Next-The-Sea came into view and with the ever helpful harbour staff on hand to take the lines, all 3 boats were safely tied up alongside by 0830.
After breakfast, an hour or so kip and a refreshing shower, Sunday was spent enjoying the warm sunshine, exploring Wells and sampling the local real ales.
Monday morning saw bright sunshine and blue skies as the boats set off for home at around 0800. Overnight the wind had conveniently swung around to the south making Saturdays Tiger of a bar more like a pussy cat. The bright sunshine sparkled off the calm sea as the boats where pushed along under full sail. Later in the day the wind picked up along with the sea state and gusty conditions saw canvas reduced and an exillerating sail resulting in a fast passage back to Tetney Haven with all boats safely back on their moorings by 2030.
