Everyone is welcome at RMYC, from experienced sailors to interested novices, and we run a series of taster & training events to establish and develop new members within the club. 

There is a very active social programme – from the regular suppers that are served after racing to the formal dinners and balls, the Club offers members ample opportunity for post-race relaxation and many occasions for inviting guests to social events. 

We focus on one-design keelboat racing, with fleets of Etchells, Squibs and the iconic classic boat the Mersey Mylne, designed specifically for the Club. 

There is an active programme of racing from April to September offering both weekday evening races and events at weekends and Bank Holidays.

The Royal Mersey Yacht Club was given its Royal Charter by Queen Victoria in 1844, making it one of the longest established Yacht Clubs in the UK.
