Welcome to the Royal Yacht Club Victoria
RYCV was initially founded as the Port Phillip Yacht Club in May 1853 and remains to be one of the oldest yacht clubs in Australia. The club is situated in Williamstown, Victoria just 13km away from Melbourne with a stunning view of the city skyline and is steeped in decades of yachting history and tradition.
Today RYCV boasts more than 900 members and over 300 yachts on the register making it an ideal club for sailors with all levels of experience. Sailors can enjoy reliable and steady breezes with little or no current - a perfect stretch of water for club sailing, or state, national and international regattas.
RYCV is well connected by road, rail and sea and our clubhouse facilities include a large dining room, bar, outdoor decking and lawn area. The dining room is open to the general public for dinner most Friday nights in addition to breakfast and lunch each weekend. The atmosphere and location of the Club makes it an ideal location for weddings and functions. Learn to sail and become a member at Royals to join our tight-knit sailing community.
