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.

Otter Drone Video

Monday 28th July 2014

Otter Drone VideoIf you have been intrigued by the aerial videos of Otter Week you might like to know a little bit more about them. They were made using a DJI Phantom Vision quad copter with a camera. Igor had to modify it by adding a gimbal to make the footage more stable and independent of the drone's sharp movements.

The Great Gatsby Ball

Tuesday 22nd July 2014

Taste like lettuce...Members say it all! The Gatsby Ball certainly didn't disappoint! It was a treat to see friends looking so different, everyone I saw had made a huge effort with their dress and accessories, the room was decorated wonderfully and at points (thank- you alcohol!)
