Royal Cornwall Yacht Club

The AZAB was the inspiration of the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club. It was created in response to the wish for an ocean race that started and finished in the UK, a wish that was taken up by the RCYC’s Colin Drummond in 1975, and the AZAB was born. It has been run every four years ever since.

Competitors in the race are warmly invited to use the Club during the course of their stay in Falmouth and sample the hospitality we have to offer.

The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club was founded in 1871, and is one of the pre-eminent clubs in the UK. Based on the waterfront in Falmouth, one of the world’s largest natural harbours, its home waters are the Carrick Roads and the uncluttered Falmouth Bay.

The club is well known for having produced a number of around the world, transatlantic, and Olympic yachtsmen/women, as well as Olympic coaches and race officers. It has a global membership and organises events and regattas for all classes of keelboat from small Day Boats to giant J-Class yachts.
