The home of Scottish sailing since 1824
Welcome to the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club, a club with a fantastic heritage and a modern outlook.
The Royal Northern & Clyde was founded in 1824 and is proud to be Scotland's oldest yacht club, as well as one of the oldest sailing clubs in the UK and the World.
Almost 200 years on, today we remain one of the largest, most active and successful yacht clubs in the country. We enjoy reciprocal links with the most prestigious yacht clubs around the globe.
The Club is located in the picturesque village of Rhu, near Helensburgh, nestled between the Firth of Clyde (our sailing area) on one side, and Loch Lomond on the other.
Many of our members live and work in Glasgow, Scotland's biggest city, and travel to the club to race on midweek evenings and weekends.
