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.
