Royal Cornwall Yacht Club

ROYAL CORNWALL YACHT CLUB

Falmouth

The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club has been a feature of Famouth's iconic harbour since 1871 and is a popular destination for many westward bound yachts that follow the regatta circuit after Cowes Week. Its association with 1930s Big Class boats is vividly preserved in the collection of racing flags presented to the club. Today it remains a vibrant club and hosts many national and international events.
