Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club

The Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club was established in 1952 by the late ‘Tiny’ Mitchell as a club for local yachtsmen. It has evolved largely through the voluntary labours of its members to become a popular venue for both racing and cruising yachtsmen. It is the only club in Cowes that can provide marina berths and shoreside boat storage facilities to its members It has an open, relaxed and very friendly atmosphere.

We are a friendly sailing club based in Gosport at Haslar marina. We are a self-managed membership club, and we are open to new members at present. We own two beautiful boats, one RelaX an X-40, light and a fast mover. Quartette is a Westerly Oceanquest 25, very comfortable and easy to handle and learn to sail in. We are a sea school, and registered as an RYA Training Centre, but this is such good value that it is for members only. Each summer we have our sailing holiday on our organised cruise in a lovely sailing destination, possibly France or the Channel Isles (2022) or Southern Ireland or Scotland to come. We take part in several offshore races, either organised by JOG or RORC, and always take part in the fun Round the Island Race. Have a look at our web site to know more

The Royal Southampton Yacht Club

The origins of the Royal Southampton Yacht Club go back to the West Quay Amateur Regatta Club in 1858, and which was renamed the Southampton Amateur Regatta Club in 1862. Frequent races were held in the waters opposite the old West Quay, before the extensive development of the Southampton waterfront. In 1868 a group of Members split from this club to form a new Southampton Regatta Club, and in 1875 the Club voted to change its name to the Southampton Yacht Club, and was awarded the right to use the Town Arms of Southampton. These form the centrepiece of the Clubs ‘belted Crest’, the belt and buckle being a heraldic device denoting membership of a group, as in a Scottish clan badge. Two years later in 1877 permission was granted by Royal and Admiralty Warrant for the new club to style itself the Royal Southampton Yacht Club. As a Royal club RSYC Members have the privilege of wearing a defaced blue ensign, bearing a crown in the centre of the Union flag. Additionally, the Club Crest is surmounted by a crown, indicating its royal status. Earl Mountbatten of Burma was Admiral of the club from 1965 until his tragic death in 1979. RSYC is currently privileged to have as its Admiral, HRH Prince Michael of Kent.
