Yacht Clubs around the World

We thought a good thing to record would be the various Yacht Clubs we visit on our travels. Obviously the best Yacht club is the “Island Yacht Club” aka the “Pub by the Sea”.

May 2017 – Guernsey – St Peter’s Port in Guernsey has two Yacht clubs, the Guernsey YC and the Royal Channel Islands YC, the latter of which we visited and was made very welcome.  In fact Bob Hough of Morning Star won a prize in the Friday meat raffle.


May 2017 – Dover, Eastbourne & Cherbourg –   We didn’t get to go in the clubs but we have previously visited the yacht club in Dover which is very old style.

January 2017 – Yangon Sailing Club, Myanmar –  We attempted to visit the club but was informed that it was members only.  Ian promptly showed the guy his RYA membership card, “I’m  member of the Royal Yachting Association” and quite indignant he was too.  It didn’t wash with the security guy,  not a member no entrance.  Alongside was the Myanmar Yachting Federation.
