Member Benefits

Royal Yacht Club of Victoria is widely known for being an extremely friendly environment. There are also a number of other benefits of being a member at RYCV.


Internet Access


The Club provides free wireless internet access for Senior Members. To use this facility, called 'NELSON', please contact the office for your user id and password.


Internet Access is provided on a 'Fair Use' policy. The facility is provided as a free of charge service to senior members who want to use the Internet to provide themselves with information pertinent to sailing, and accessing email. Should misuse of the facility occur, then the Club reserves the right to discontinue the service to those members.


Barbeque Area


The barbeque area is available for all members and their guests, at any time of the day. With our fantastic lawn and location across from the city of Melbourne, the club is a great spot for social gatherings.


Yard & Marina


Members receive discounts for yard and marina services and of course, are given priority over external users.




The club library is full of material regarding the passion we all share – sailing. Membership grants you access and borrowing rights to the club library.


Car Park


Senior members have access to the car park. RYCV is one of the very few metropolitan-based yacht clubs that can provide such a privilege to its senior members.




Discounts are available to members for certain training courses to develop their skills, which are held regularly at the club.


Reciprocal Arrangements


There are many yacht clubs across Australia and around the world which we enjoy reciprocal arrangements and where Royals sailors will be treated as if they were members of the host club.
