(scroll down for the emails to members)

Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club’s three Clubhouses are ‘Type C’ premises.  All members and guests (except those aged 15 or below with an accompanying adult, and those aged 65 or above), must use the ‘LeaveHomeSafe’ mobile application to gain access to Kellett Island, Middle Island and Shelter Cove for whatever reason. 


For those that are eligible to complete a form to gain entry to the Club, in order to save time we strongly encourage you to complete the form in advance online.  The email acknowledgement can then be shown to our staff.   Alternatively you may complete a form at the entrance.

Masks must be worn at all times except when eating and drinking.  When walking around the Club OTHER than in F&B outlets, group sizes must be no larger than 4.

As Type C, our F&B premises may accommodate groups/tables of up to six.

Guests - each member account may bring up to 5 guests to the Club (unless organising a private event in a fuction room through the Banquet Department).
