Welcome...

To the website of the Hampstead and Yalding Cruising Club. HYCC is a friendly river cruising club based on the River Medway.

The oldest club on the river, the HYCC was formed in 1968, following an idea from Jim Breden, the owner at that time of Breden's Boatyard, now Little Venice Country Park. Jim wanted a family club on the River Medway, an ideal that is still maintained today. The club's headquarters are now based at Medway Wharf Marina.

Since its inception the club has spread from its original base and now encompasses members from both the non tidal and tidal Medway, Thames, Essex rivers and the South Coast, as well as being actively supported by Marina owners.

Latest: 2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the HYCC
