Sociable RBYC

The RBYC Members are a social lot and when we can't be on boats sailing, our social events provide a range of distractions throughout the year for club members and their families.

We organise winter talks on monthly club nights ranging from external visitors like
British yachting journalist, author and broadcaster Tom Cunliffe, Tristan Gooley the Natural Navigator a Red Funnel Captain and Yachting Monthly writer Duncan Wells.  We have learnt about yacht electronics, MOB lifesavers, tying knots, stress free sailing, arctic sailing and much more!

We have informative talks from our very own Members and topics have covered Astro-navigation, warm weather sailing, Fastnet racing and Confessions of a Skipper. 

If any members would like to give a short talk about their adventures on and off the water, let me know.

Throughout the year, we also host a variety of non sailing social events.  Please see the list below to register.

The Annual Dinner typically in February where we make awards, some serious and some not so serious and dress up in smart gear, leaving the oilskins in the cupboard for a night.  It's usually a black tie and ball gowns event and dress to impress!

Skittles Evening held at our usual meet pub in Binfield - a great night to enjoy the company of your fellow sailors over a light supper and a few drinks in informal surroundings. It gets quite competitive with prizes for the winning team!


Quiz Night held at the AGM or on a monthly club night usually hosted by Commodore Kate.  Come along and test your nautical knowledge.  It's fun, hard at times and noisy and sometimes argumentative too.  What else would you expect from a group of sailors?

Summer BBQ - time for a summer social off the water!  Come and enjoy an evening with great food and company and pray that the weather is kind to us on the day but this year we have the use of a barn just in case so no need to pack your oileys!  Family and friends welcome!

Should you be keen to see a particular social event, want to give a talk at a Club Night or want to organise a club event for the benefit of the Members and their Families, please email Mike Seaton and we would love to get your feedback and input!

Why not come along to one of our regular member evenings on the first Tuesday of the month at The Jack O'Newbury Public House, Skittles Bar, Terrace Road North, Binfield, Berkshire. RG42 5PH
