The Royal BVI Yacht Club


The home of sailing, in the sailing capital of the world

Welcome to the Royal BVI Yacht Club



The Royal BVI Yacht Club is a busy sailing club with a thriving youth, racing and social calendar.

Support our Rebuild and help us get BVI Youth Sailors back on the water! 

Please visit the fundraising page via the link below to see more and make a donation.

The recovery process for all in the BVI will take time and the RBVIYC is no exception.  We are delighted to have been able to repair four of our Optis and restart our after school programme but we have a long way to go before we can offer the opportunities to the community that we were able to before Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017. 

Over 70% of our fleet is destroyed, missing in action or beyond repair so we need new equipment to be able to get more kids on the water. 1 new Opti costs in the region of $3000 so please donate what you can. 

All funds raised will go directly to purchasing new equipment. The Royal BVI Yacht Club is a non-profit organization.



Whatever your age, skill level or knowledge, the Royal BVI Yacht Club welcomes anyone with a desire to get out on the water. With arguably the best sailing location and conditions in the world, on the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea, we believe there really is no better place to sail.


Our sailing programmes and events include beginner classes, after school clubs, race coaching and hosting both club and international regattas which partnered with a busy social calendar mean we have something for everyone.


We are honoured to have the Royal Ascent and are proud to be recognized by World Sailing (formerly ISAF) as the National Authority for sailing in the British Virgin Islands.


Many of our BVI sailing alumni and members have gone on to race in internationally renowned regattas and the Olympics Games. We enjoy an active local and international membership, and new members and visitors can be assured of a warm welcome.
