Welcome to the RBYC
The Royal County of Berkshire Yacht Club is dedicated to helping our members enjoy sailing and
improve their sailing skills, even though most of our members don't own a boat.
We offer sailing trips on chartered boats for members most months of the year.
We are pleased to be able to offer a good season of sailing trips, starting with the yacht handling weekend from 10th to 13th June as the lockdown restrictions are eased and the infection rates are low. This first trip is well subscribed, if you are interested in sailing on this or any of the other trips click on the Activities link to see what is available.
Congratulations to Imogen Pritchard, James Pritchard, Alex Golding, Chrstina Eagle, James d'Sa and Richard Dell who have successfully passed their Day Skipper theory. This was another of our successful Zoom™ courses. We plan to have further Day Skipper and Yachtmaster theory courses in the off season. We are running Day Skipper and Competent Crew practical courses with the first one scheduled for the beginning of June. Please contact Peter Hurley if you are interested to learn more.
Your committee is still meeting each month but unfortunately we cannot meet as a club until the Covid 19 situation changes. We are publishing our meeting minutes and encourage all members to communicate with each other via Facebook and email until we can meet face to face again. We plan to return to our usual venue at the Downshire Golf Club on July 6th assuming lockdown is lifted at that point.
In April we held a very successful quiz night over Zoom™ and Kahoot™. In March we had a Tall Ships talk by Neil Dunnet. We are looking for members to help organise other social events either on-line or in person later in the year. Please contact the committee if you have ideas.
