The RNVR Yacht Club was formed in 1947 by officers of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve for racing Fireflies against other clubs. We now welcome members from all the armed forces together with a limited number of civilians. We are predominantly a cruising club with over 400 members who own between them around 200 yachts, many of which are based on the south coast of England.
This year there are 10 sailing and 8 social events, all well organised and varied to offer something for everyone. Click here for our 2022 programme.
2022 Programme Highlight2022 is our 75th Anniversary year and will culminate with a gala dinner at the Painted Hall in Greenwich in November 2022. This will be an exceptional occasion and we welcome old and new members to join us with their guests.
Why join us?
Membership provides opportunities to go sailing and socialise informally on members' boats and in marinas, yacht clubs and at formal venues and restaurants.
We welcome current and former members of all British and Commonwealth armed forces as well as a limited number of civilian sailors. We are a sailing club that embraces Naval ethos and traditions and provides a friendly like-minded community amongst our members.
