Royal Bermuda Yacht Club

Royal Bermuda Yacht Club

The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club is a private Club and is the third oldest club holding a Royal Warrant outside the British Isles. The Bermuda Yacht Club was established on the 1st November, 1844 by a party of thirty gentlemen, consisting largely of officers in the British Army, most of them belonging to the 20th Regiment, then stationed here in Bermuda. There are now approximately 850 resident and non-resident members.

Early in 1845, at the invitation of the Bermuda Yacht Club's Commodore, Lord Mark Kerr, the Prince HRH Prince Albert, the first Duke of Edinburgh, graciously consented to become Patron of the Club. His Royal Highness, Prince Albert gave permission for the Bermuda Yacht Club to style themselves the "ROYAL BERMUDA YACHT CLUB".

After almost 60 years occupation of No.52 Front Street, the RBYC in 1933 acquired a fine water site at Albuoy's Point, Hamilton, built a large Club House on their new property and moved into their new quarters on the 16th December, 1933.
