The Bombay Yacht Club was founded in 1846 with Henry Morland as club commodore and 30 years later – on the recommendation of Sir Philip Edmond Wodehouse and patronage of Queen Victoria became known as Royal Bombay Yacht Club. The seafront clubhouse was built in 1881, and received a number of prominent visitors within its first ten years including: H.R.H. Prince Arthur, their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Connaught and American railroad tycoon and yachting enthusiast Mr. William Kissam Vanderbilt – also part owner of the 1895 America’s Cup winner, the 37.5m sloop: Defender.
Boating, sailing, banquets, and events, organized with experience, attention to detail,
panache and style.
Every time we visit the club we make new friends and catch up with old ones.
The children’s training programs are outstanding and safe for my kids. Amazing!
Family weekends are so much better now with interesting sailing activities. Thank you for the best service!!!!!!!!
