A RCOD sails past the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Burnham

Welcome to the website of the RCYC Burnham, home of the Endeavour Trophy. Founded in 1872 on the Thames at Erith, the Club moved to Burnham in 1892, and opened its award winning Clubhouse in 1931. We offer the best one design racing on the east coast for Dragons, Squibs and 707s ; the newly refurbished fleet of Royal Corinthian ODs welcomes the classic sailor and our cruising fleet encourages the experienced and supports the novice. The Otters, founded in 1930, offer both enjoyment and expertise on the water. Come and join us.

The Topper Endeavour Trophy

Endeavour TrophyThe Topper Endeavour Trophy is a unique event in the UK dinghy sailing world. Held on the tidal waters of the rivers Crouch and Roach at the end of every year, it's an invitation only three day event, with the guest-list hand-picked from National Champions of selected recognised fleets. The RYA recognises The Endeavour as the pinnacle of that year's dinghy sailing achievements which will hail a 'Champion of Champions'.

Saturday 25th October 2014

Some RCOD trophiesThe Laying Up Supper will take on a slightly different format this year, more of a celebration of the past year and less of a prize-giving. Trophies will be presented to the RCOD Class as well as the prizes for the Pursuit Race which took place earlier in the day. However, the main part of the menu stays the same - let's hear it for Steak and Kidney Pudding!
