2022 - The Centenary Year

Celebrating 100 Years of the Royal Lymington Yacht Club

2022 will be an incredibly special year, the Club will be celebrating 100 years since its foundation in 1922. The Centenary Year will launch in the Evening of the NYE party on December 31st 2021. We are planning a year of celebrations, building on our existing successful annual events on and off the water including a Centenary Festival Day, and a spectacular Centenary Party.  (We hope that our patron, Princess Anne, will be able to visit the Club during 2022).

Key Dates

Saturday 18th June 2022 – the Centenary Festival – a day for all members to enjoy being on the water together followed by festivities for all the family in the clubhouse (all day event).
Directly after sailing there will be hot food available, music, family entertainment and games for all ages. 

Saturday 3rd September 2022 – the Centenary Party, when we ‘party like it’s 1922’ (evening event)

The Club plans to run all traditional annual events as normal throughout the year; their dates will be published closer to the time.

Club History

Explore the history of the Royal Lymington Yacht Club since its foundation in 1922 at the RLymYC History website here.

The archives of the RLymYC were largely lost in the great flood of 1989 when much of Bath Road and both clubs were inundated. An attempt was made to save them and they languished in a container outside the Club until they were rediscovered. An official Club Archivist was appointed to oversee their preservation.

Your support is help is needed, loan of Historic Club memorabilia, pictures for our exhibition, stories, event support and even sponsorship to help make the events special!
