That racing heritage had been maintained throughout the modern history of the Club. We have hosted rounds of the Class I Offshore World and National championships, and have played a significant role in the organising of the Cowes to Torquay race meetings since 1961. The Club has initiated and administered the inaugural Round Britain Marathon and provided organisers for the two subsequent editions.
Members own powered craft, classic and modern, between 6 metre RIBs and 60 metre motor yachts. The calendar includes rallies in company in the Spring and Autumn, with an Open Weekend in the Summer. Launched in 2009 was an Inter-Club Team Trophy for teams of three vessels, of any size, with entries invited from other yacht clubs and owners associations, and the social nature of this and all our weekends is legendary! Alongside it is the EP Barrus Trophy, exclusively for RIBS, but any individual may enter either competition, and an annual dinner in December rounds out the year.
