International Council of Yacht Clubs

The ICOYC website provides a window into the world of the leading yacht clubs, with their long histories and fine traditions. Over the past several years, a significant number of these clubs have joined together to form the International Council of Yacht Clubs. This has helped them by sharing their experiences, learning from their successes (and failures), and reviewing the common challenges they face.

On this website you will find information, news and views about the ICOYC, details of the member clubs, plans for events, and comments on yachting-related developments. You will also find copies of the ICOYC printed newsletters. Full proceedings of world-wide forums and regional conferences are in the pages reserved for signed-in members of ICOYC.

Although the internet, e-mail and telephone seem to dominate communications these days, ICOYC is also actively publishing a newsletter and occasional articles or opinion pieces in print.  Copies of those are provided here, along with related documents from other publications. If you have some material that should be in our Library, please send your recommendation to [email protected]
