Royal Norwegian Yacht Club

Royal Norwegian Yacht Club
Norway

The Kongelig Norsk Seilforening, or Royal Norwegian Yacht Club, was established in Oslo 1883.The club has more than 4,000 members, mainly located in the Oslo area, and is by far the largest yacht club in Norway. For decades membership has been open in accordance with national sporting regulations.

Racing is in focus and members are proud to say that the club has “always” been represented at the Olympic Games. Traditionally, the racing season in Norway has been May to September, but the keen sailors are stretching out the season. Located 60 degrees North, the winter in Oslo is more suited for skiing. Finn dinghy, Laser and Star are classes where the Norwegian sailors have been in the international top level in the recent past years. The majority of keel boat sailors are in boats such as Dragon and Melges 24. Even in 5.5m there are modern boats doing well. Match Racing is increasing while Team Racing so far has not been so attractive.

The junior department has a large number of dinghy sailors. The club has active training programs especially for youngsters. A full time, professional coach is in charge of a large team of part time coaches. Most of the Race Management is taken care of by a highly skilled group of members working as volunteers.
