- Social & Clubhouse
Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell, RNCYC Members, won the silver medal in the 470 class at their first Olympics, London 2012
Luke started his sailing in Optimist dinghies at the Club almost 20 years ago and progressed through the RYA squad system. He teamed up with Stuart just three years ago and what they have achieved since then is phenomenal. Luke has remained a member of the Club throughout that time and has always flown the Club burgee. In recognition of Stuart’s contribution to the success of their team he was invited to join the Club in 2012. The Club is very proud of them both; they are excellent ambassadors for the sport – two nicer guys you could not expect to meet.
The Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club can trace its origins back to 1824 and has been the home of successful yacht racing since then right up to the present day.
The Club boasts a magnificent Clubhouse in Rhu and its own mooring field. Regular racing is provided both on the East Patch and in the Gareloch. A strong cruising presence is also maintained with regular musters.
We are a recognised RYA teaching establishment and provide regular tuition in dinghies for youngsters, keelboats and others such as powerboats, first aid and shore-based navigation. The Club operates a ground-breaking co-ownership programme which makes a fleet of nine Sonars available for Members’ use.
The Clubhouse is open every day with bar and dining facilities available. There is an extensive social programme, mainly in the winter, and a variety of rooms are available for private functions.
