The Royal Artillery Yacht Club (RAYC) aims to promote sailing amongst all ranks of the Gunners; providing opportunities, encouragement, funding and support to all members of the Royal Regiment and their families who wish to participate in the sport for adventurous training, competitive and recreational benefit.

The Club seeks to develop key skills and qualifications amongst its members in the four disciplines of Offshore, Dinghies & Dayboats Windsurfing and Kitesurfing. In addition, the Club provides training in powerboat handling, management and safety. It does this by arranging training opportunities, running centrally coordinated events and by providing expert advice, equipment and financial support to those who seek to develop their own sailing ambitions.

Army Offshore Regatta

RAYC finished 2nd equal (with the RLC) overall in the Dolphin Trophy at the Army Offshore Regatta.

Bombardier 2 in the Mates' Race back from Osbourne Bay, skippered by Captain of Boats, managed a clever escape at the first mark in a dying breeze and strong contrary tide, to build a big lead with the tide as the rest of the fleet struggled. Otherwise she was fifth in the IRC Class, overall.

12 Regt crew on Nerita started well with a win in the double points Offshore Race, enduring a long beat back from a very choppy Owers in breeze up to Force 7. Then sailed a conservative Inshore Series with a 2,3,4 in the windward leewards and a second in the Passage Race, to take the overall win from the AGC boat by 2 points.
