      Royal Mersey Yacht Club Introduction

The Royal Mersey Yacht Club was founded in 1844 in the reign of Queen Victoria who was its first patron. For over 160 years the Club has promoted yacht racing on the River Mersey and adjoining waters.

The Club focuses on one design keel-boat racing and enjoys what is virtually the only stretch of sheltered deep water between Scotland and North Wales. There is an intensive programme of racing from May to October focusing on weekday evening races. The Club also holds handicap racing for cruisers and organises or participates in regattas and other events including the Menai Strait's fortnight.

 The Club House is located at Rock

  Ferry on the Wirral and is a few yards

  from the jetty that is used by the Club

  for access to the River. A short

  distance from the Mersey Tunnel and

  with fast links to the M56 and M53

  motorways, the Club is within easy

  access to members in Lancashire,

  Cheshire, Greater Manchester and beyond as well as to local members on Merseyside.

There is a very active social programme centred in the Club House. From the regular dinners and suppers that are served after racing to the formal dinners and balls, the Club offers members many occasions to invite guests to social events. The Club House is also available for private functions.

Deep water moorings are organised by the club for class boats. A fleet of safety boats operates a

boarding service from the jetty on  all race days. Winter storage is available for members' boats in

the Club boat-yard.

Experienced yachtsmen and interested novices are particularly welcome at The Royal Mersey. Visitors normally sail with a member for  a few occasions before being invited to apply for membership.
