SHARES

The Royal Bombay Yacht Club (RBYC) was founded in 1846 in Colaba (formerly Wellington Pier), an area of Mumbai in India, for the lovers of the sea.

The club provides for restaurant and hotel facilities along with sailing events and championships for members and sailors. For all the sailing lovers who want to get on to a sailboat at the Gateway of India in order to enjoy the soft ocean breeze, the sound of waves, unrivalled views of the city skyline, and a magnificent sunset, this is the perfect club for you. However, an inherently exclusive club, membership to the RBYC sometimes takes years for a person to acquire.

Back in 1958, the Bombay Club was closed for not accepting Indian members. The RBYC granted honorary memberships to all Bombay Club members and provided a new home for their furniture and other effects. However, in 2013 the Royal Bombay Yacht Club Residential Chambers received an award of merit in the 2013 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards.

Recently, world-famous filmmaker Christopher Nolan shot the movie Tenet in Mumbai. The shoot locations for Tenet include iconic spots in Mumbai like Breach Candy Hospital, Cafe Mondegar, Colaba Causeway, Colaba Market, Gateway of India, Grant Road, Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and of course, the grand Royal Bombay Yacht Club.

Once you are a member at the RBYC, you can rent a sailboat at a minimal cost, or even free; go sailing as often as you like; and take a few friends each time to have a wonderful experience on the sea.
