For UK X-Yacht Owners

The X-Yachts Owners Association (XYOA) was set up in 2011 by a group of keen and enthusiastic UK X-Yacht Owners to promote rallies, racing, social events and the sharing of information within the fleet.

While mostly based in the UK, the XYOA has a growing overseas membership and a number of owners keep their X-Yacht overseas.  The XYOA now has over 140 members from England, Scotland, Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, USA and Australia.  The XYOA hosts several UK based events throughout the year including sailing and shore based events.  To support owners regardless of home port, the XYOA has developed a new website and has an active members’ WhatsApp group to provide a strong virtual network of owners.  Members support one another in a range of ways including helping to fix technical issues, sharing information on passages, and we hold a crew register of members willing to make passages with fellow members.  The Association also offers its members a range of exclusive offers, with discounts on items such as sails, electronic equipment, winches and insurance.

The Owners Association has a reputation for running fun, friendly events where like-minded X-Yacht owners can share their enjoyment of sailing these wonderful yachts as well has help exchange tips and ideas on everything X-Yacht related.  To find out more and how to become a member, please visit
