The Crouch Yacht Club (CYC) was formed in 1907 and was known across the East Coast and western European ports for its cruiser racing. It offered one-design and local handicap racing.

But the club has now closed and is sold. Plans have been submitted for its return to residential accommodation – not a multiplex – just one house – the original facade for which currently forms part of the interior. The relatively modern frontage you see in this picture may be removed.
