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.


This Week at the Club

Wednesday 17th to Sunday 21st September 2014

Heritage Open DayLast weekend RCYC took part in the Heritage Open Day and the Club welcomed visitors both days to discover some of the Club's history, look at photos and documents as well as enjoy a tour round the clubhouse including the race box. It is quite likely they went away better informed about our Club history than most of our members! If any members are interested in taking part in a similar tour one weekend, please phone Kate 01621 782105 and let her know so that arrangements can be made.

Popular Pontoon Party

Tuesday 16th September 2014

Sheena snapped the shutter...Every year the Southampton Boat Show tries to rival our Pontoon Party and again it failed. The RCYC boats on show were more crowded than anything at Southampton. The RCYC clearly offers more to the Boating Public. It must be that there are far more interesting and pretty boats around in Burnham...
