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.
The first trip of the year
We are pleased to be able to offer a good season of sailing trips, this started 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 was a great success, if you are interested in sailing on any of the other trips click on the Activities link to see what is available.
Congratulations to Anna, Christian and Francesca who have successfully passed their Day Skipper practical. This was another of our RYA courses. We plan to have further Day Skipper and Yachtmaster theory courses in the off season. We are running further Day Skipper and Competent Crew practical courses . Please contact Peter Hurley if you are interested to learn more.
Your committee meets each month, currently on-line until Covid rules change. We are publishing our meeting minutes and encourage all members to communicate with each other via Facebook and email. We successfully returned to our usual venue at the Downshire Golf Club on July 6th outside for our monthly get together and plan to going forward on the first Tuesday of each month. It was a good chance for members and new members to meet up and discuss sailing for the rest of the year.
In April we held a very successful quiz night over Zoom™ and Kahoot™. 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.
