The Royal BVI Yacht Club

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

How to support our youth sailing projects

The Royal BVI Yacht Club is a not-for-profit organisation. Our Committees are staffed by volunteers, and all race organisation is performed by volunteers as well. We are therefore dependent on members, volunteers and donations from generous sponsors and individuals.

All funds received are directed right back into the Clubs Programmes. In particular our youth training and development programme requires ongoing financial support towards:

  • Maintaining our fleet of Optimists, Lasers and RS Fevas
  • Maintaining and operating our coach boats
  • Supporting our full time instructors
  • Organizing regattas and helping kids to travel and enter overseas regattas


Members enjoy numerous benefits, including substantial discounts for sailing events and with many BVI businesses. We also enjoy considerable international membership, with reciprocal arrangements for many prestigious yacht clubs around the world.


Volunteers are always welcome at the RBVIYC. We need volunteers to help out with adult and youth sailing, as well as social events associated with our sailing events. We are able to sign off on activities as part of community service requirements towards local school credits.

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

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.  All funds raised will go directly to purchasing new equipment.
