ONE GLOBAL HKRNVR MEMORIAL VASE- POSTPONED

A harbour pursuit race and a constituent event of the Top Dog Trophy Series.

The Vase was presented to the Club more than 40 years ago by the local Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves with the proviso that "the course should take participating yachts into waters patrolled by the HKRNVR." The HKRNVR is now defunct but the trophy continues to serve as a reminder to yachtsmen of when amateur sailors played their part in the security of Hong Kong.

SAIL TRAINING

 
 
 

JANUARY TO JUNE 2021 SAIL TRAINING COURSE

Despite the current shutdown of Sail Training activities we are planning ahead in the hopes we can be sailing again soon. We are therefore excited to announce that our youth and junior weekend sailing schedule for January to June 2021 has been finalised and is now open for enrolment.

 Please note that a valid RHKYC Membership number must be provided when enroling using the Member’s option and price. Members rates and priority enrolment only applies to members and their immediate family. All other enrolments should be made as “non-members”. Failure to input a valid RHKYC membership number on the course sign up form will result in your enrolment being cancelled. Enrolments made using the membership option will be billed to membership accounts.

Junior (6-11 years old) Courses: click here
Youth (10-18 years old) Courses: click here
 

Due to the uncertainty over when courses can start given the current Covid-19 shutdown, we will not be taking payment for courses at this time. Once we are able to confirm if/when courses will go ahead, we will charge course fees to member’s accounts and will send an credit card payment  link to non-members.


If your course is full and you wish to be notified of additional spaces being made available or you would like to be notified of future course enrolment openings, please register here.

MEMBERSHIP INTRODUCTORY SCHEME

The Club has launched the "Introductory Membership Scheme" that provides prospective applicants for membership the opportunity to experience on a one-time basis and for a limited time the benefits of membership without incurring entrance fees.  Full details of the application procedure can be viewed from the Club's website here and also from the Membership Office.

A key element of the Scheme is providing a mentor to each applicant.  The role of a mentor is to help participants familiarize themselves about the Club’s sports programs and facilities and meet other like-minded members.  The mentor program has been highly successful both for mentors and mentees.  Members who are happy to take this role please contact the Membership Office on 2239-0372 for details.
