The Royal Southampton is one of the region's premier yacht clubs offering a wide range of cruising, racing, training and social activities throughout the year. We were awarded our Royal Charter in 1875 which makes us one of the oldest royal yacht clubs in the country. Yet while traditions are important, the Club is young at heart and constantly attracting new individual and family members of all ages.

Following declining use, our 2018 AGM approved the decision to vacate our Ocean Village Marina premises after a very enjoyable 30 years. The Club now is forging ahead in new directions. Other clubs are facing the demographic and cultural changes we have been experiencing. Our approach is to move forward to meet these new conditions and deliver what is needed now to provide opportunities for racing, cruising and socialising to a new generation, creating the model for a leading Yacht Club of the future.              Read more here...
