The Redhouse Yacht Club (RYC) is among the oldest yacht clubs in South Africa and is located just 700 meters along the Towpath from Rivers Edge Guesthouse. It hosts large dinghy races and operates a training program that has produced international champion sailors.

The Club caters primarily to dinghy sailors, sponsors a major dinghy racing program, is an affiliate of the South African Sailing Academy and is a member of the International Sailing Federation as well as part of South African Sailing.

The climate around Algoa Bay allows for year-round sailing, and river sailing provides a more sheltered environment for smaller craft.

There are about two races per week throughout the year with periodic larger events including national regattas. During its evolution the club has featured large fleets of diverse dinghies with the predominant race fleets presently consisting of Lasers, Mirrors, and Optimists.

The Club provides marina services for local and visiting boaters, and is endorsed as one of the regional attractions by the Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism Board.
