The Royal Yacht Club Victoria (RYCV) is a not-for profit organisation which relies on our partners, sponsors and the goodwill of our members who volunteer their time in a variety of ways. In addition to our small team of staff, we have a General Committee, and a number of Sub-Committees which specialise in various aspects of the Club.

General Committee

The General Committee plays a key role in the day-to-day running of the club, and also future development. Regular meetings are generally on the last Tuesday night of each month, in addition to some more specific meetings. If you have any queries for the General Committee you can contact the office on (03) 9397 1277 or submit them to
