OVERVIEW


The Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron (RSLYS) is a yacht club located in Fort Charlotte, Serpens Land. It is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Serpens Land, being founded in 1912.

The Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron is known for hosting several sailing regattas throughout the year. These events most notably include the Broughton Bay Cup Regatta held in late April and the Fort Charlotte Week Regatta held in August.

HISTORY


The Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron was established in 1912 in Fort Charlotte with the name "Fort Charlotte Yacht Club". It can trace it's origins back to a group of amateur sailors who organised a regatta to celebrate Dominion Day.

Early regattas held at the club included sailing yacht races and rowing races. During this time, it was popular for sailors to build their own sailboats to compete against other club members.

In 1932, the Fort Charlotte Yacht Club was formally granted royal patronage and changed their name to the "Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron". In the same year, the club held the first Fort Charlotte Week Regatta. The regatta drew competitors from across the Western Isles.

Until 1936, the club's primary clubhouse was located along the Fort Charlotte waterfront. In 1936, the Royal Serpens Land Yacht Squadron purchased property in downtown Fort Charlotte from the newly defunct British Western Isles Company.

FORT CHARLOTTE WEEK REGATTA


The Fort Charlotte Week Regatta is a yachting competition held in Lonsdale Inlet. It runs over the course of a week with racing held every day. It is open to boats of all sizes, with boats being separated into different fleets based on size and performance. The regatta attracts competitors from countries across the Western Isles; most international competitors enter the prestigious high-performance fleet in fast, modern racing yachts.
