Royal BVI Yacht Club

The home of sailing,

 in the sailing capital of the world

Join, Volunteer or Donate

The Royal BVI Yacht Club is a not-for-profit organisation. Our Committees are staffed by volunteers, and all race organisation is performed by volunteers as well. We are therefore dependent on members, volunteers and donations from generous sponsors and individuals.

All funds received are directed right back into the Clubs Programmes. In particular our youth training and development programme requires ongoing financial support towards:

  • Maintaining our fleet of Optimists and Lasers
  • Maintaining and operating our coach boat
  • Supporting our full time instructor
  • Organizing regattas and helping kids to travel and enter overseas regattas


Members enjoy numerous benefits, including substantial discounts for sailing events and with many BVI businesses. We also enjoy considerable international membership, with reciprocal arrangements for many prestigious yacht clubs around the world.


Of course, volunteers are always welcome at the RBVIYC! We need volunteers to help out with adult and youth sailing, as well as social events associated with our sailing events. We are also able to sign off on activities as part of community service requirements towards local school credits.
