Locations /Yarmouth Rib Charter
Located on the north west of the Island, the town of Yarmouth and its attractive harbour mark the mouth of the river Yar. Yarmouth is for many the jewel in the crown amongst several picturesque Solent ports and harbours. A sixteenth century castle and the UK's longest wooden pier mark the entrance to the port. The town is unspoilt with beautiful period architecture.
The close proximity of the harbour to the town is unusual and brings a unique atmosphere as is apparent with a large Wightlink car ferry berthed alongside the castle, dominating both the town and harbour! Yarmouth is well served with great restaurants and beyond the town, fantastic walks along the river Yar.
Yarmouth hosts several events which seem to embrace the whole town, none more so than Old Gaffers Festival, held biannually in June, which is now a landmark Isle of Wight event with a significant following. The Royal Solent Yacht Club hosts the annual Taittinger Regatta every July.
