We are rightly proud of our sailing heritage at RYCV, but you don’t have to be adept on the water to appreciate what our club has to offer. Royal Yacht Club of Victoria hosts a number of social events throughout the year for its members and their guests. We try and mix up the types of functions hosted to cater for the different demographics at the club and are always looking at new ideas. Royals has an excellent reputation throughout the yachting fraternity as being traditional, friendly and above all a nice place to visit.

Below are just some of the events which are taking place in 2016-17. Keep an eye out for further information being released closer to the event!
