ICOYC Affiliate Clubs

The International Council Of Yacht Clubs is a group of the most active yacht clubs in the world, the ICOYC providing a window into their world of yachting, their long histories and fine traditions.
A significant number of these clubs have joined together during recent years to form the International Council, a catalyst for sharing their experience, and learning from the successes achieved and challenges faced.
Clubs that are admitted to membership of the ICOYC are primarily the senior yacht clubs in the various key yachting locations. They share the finest yachting traditions and are of sufficient size, with a sufficient range of activities, to be able to contribute to the deliberations of the Council.

 The King’s Royal Hussars
The King’s Royal Hussars is the successor regiment to the 10th., 11th. and 14th. Light Dragoons, the formation of which was approved by King George I in July 1715 as part of an army tasked to counter the Jacobite rebellion. Known as the light cavalry, later the Light Brigade, they were subsequently amalgamated with the 11th. Hussars.
In July 2011, the KRH trooped its Guidon through Hamble and beat retreat at the Royal Southern Yacht Club, the precursor to a unique Twinning arrangement, engendered by the strong historical connection that they shared in the flamboyant figure of the late Lt.Gen. James Brudenell, 7th. Earl of Cardigan. He commanded the 11th. from 1840-1854 and was concurrently Commodore of the Club from 1847-1868. His Lordship is reputed to have flown the colours of the Club on his yacht Dryad, moored in Balaclava Harbour for the duration of the Crimean War, where he famously commanded the Light Brigade and led it’s famous “Charge”.
This Twinning Arrangement seeks to establish and maintain, in perpetuity, friendly relations between Club and Regiment and, through that friendship, promote sailing, social, educational and youth exchanges, and share a supportive interest in each other’s activities as appropriate.
Most recently, in April 2015 a KRH crew sailed alongside the Royal Southern in Antigua Sailing Week and in July 2015, Members of the Club attended the Regiment’s Tercentenary Parade at their Tidworth garrison, commanded by Lt.Col. Justin Kingsford.

 HMS Blazer
HMS Blazer is a commissioned warship in the Royal Navy and is the seventh ship to carry the name. One of fourteen Archers Class P2000 patrol vessels and part of the 1st. Patrol Boat Squadron, she was laid up in GRP at Watercraft Marine in Shoreham and having been completed by Vosper Thornycroft, went down the ways in 1998 and entered service with the University Royal Naval Unit (URNU) in 1990. At 20 metres LOA, she tips the scales at 50 tonnes, is powered by twin Rolls Royce turbo-diesels and operates with a permanent crew of five.
She is primarily dedicated to URNU training, the objective being to provide high quality sea training experiences to university undergraduates, developing seamanship, teambuilding and leadership skills. Wider tasking includes officer cadet training with the Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, VVIP visits and security patrols and with a modest 1.8 metre draft, often shows the White Ensign in places that larger vessels cannot reach.
Blazer is the URNU at Southampton Solent University, Portsmouth University and Southampton Institute, is currently undergoing a major refit and after her re-commissioning, it is hoped to welcome her and her crew to the Yacht Haven under her current Commanding Officer, Lt. Nick Palmer RN, and his successors.
