Founded in 1815, the Royal Yacht Squadron is the world’s most prestigious yacht club, counting among its members Prince Philip—to say nothing of its patron, Queen Elizabeth II. Located at Cowes Castle on the Isle of Wight, the club consists of an elite membership of four hundred yacht owners and sailing enthusiasts, all dedicated to promoting yachting in its many forms.

This beautifully illustrated book commemorates the bicentennial of the Royal Yacht Squadron, tracing its history from the founding to the present and telling the stories of key members, major races, and the many changes to yachting and the club over the decades. A foreword by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh rounds out the package, reminding readers that the Royal Yacht Squadron remains vibrant and engaged with the sport and pastime of yachting to this day.
