International Council of Yacht Clubs

The ICOYC was formed in 2006 and the members now include many of the world’s leading yacht clubs. RVYC is proud to be a founding member of ICOYC. We work together, sharing our experience, for the benefit of all our individual club members.

In the words of John McNeill, ICOYC president, "Although the Council is made up of well established clubs with a basis of history and traditions, you’ll find that as a network of organizations we are focused on the future of our clubs and the sport, and are sensitive to how we must evolve to meet the needs of our individual clubs and memberships. Council Member Clubs share an active passion for the sport, similar business models in size and complexity, and a mutual trust that allows us to openly explore our thoughts and experiences, both good and bad, in a persistent effort toward improvement."

For newsletters, events, and more information, please visit the ICOYC website.

The annual Commodores’ Forum, open to the flag officers and general managers of Council clubs, is a highlight of our calendar, but we are involved in many more inter-club activities, as the ICOYC website shows. Any of the officers will be happy to talk in more detail about the Council, so get in touch if you would like additional information.
