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.
There is no club night in August but we are back on Tuesday 6th September.
The first trip of 2021
This year's Cruising Programme is in mid season events are included in the Activities listing linked below. Cruising Events 2022
At the beginning of this month we had a very successful trip to Vigo in northwest Spain. There were three club boats, everyone managed to get to Vigo despite cancelled and rearranged flights. This area is very different from the mediterranean with very few non Spanish tourists and room in the marinas without having to panic book or turn up at lunch time. There were beautiful bays for lunch time anchoring, however some were nudist beaches. One of our club members joined in (no names).
Last weekend we had the successful "away from the Solent weekend". Next month, we have the Swedish trip.
In September, we have a Sailing Skills weekend and the John Mountain Cup weekend from the 7th-9th October. We are planning a great weekend which will be fun as well as improving your sailing skills. Please sign up by clicking the link: 22-11 John Mountain Cup (Deposit).
in September there is the Southampton Boat show, if you are an RYA member there are deals to be had. It is a good day out, either fantasy boat shopping or buying sailing items or holidays.
In December we are running a Sea Survival course. This is an excellent course to attend as you get to use your life jacket and get into a life raft for real all be it in a swimming pool and set off flares. If you should ever need to use these for real, this practice is invaluable. Please sign up by clicking this link: Sea Survival Course
Your committee meets each month, now back face-to-face; we are publishing our meeting minutes and encourage all members to communicate with each other via Facebook and email if they can't attend our regular monthly club meetings. These are normally held on the first Tuesday of each month and we are now trying a new venue, the Binfield Club, RG42 4HP.
