Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

The Royal Ocean Racing Club has been privileged to have Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as our Patron for almost 70 years. We join the Nation and others in mourning her death and offer our deepest sympathies to His Majesty The King and the whole Royal Family.

In 1975, HM The Queen and Prince Phillip visited The RORC London Clubhouse at 20 St James’s Place on the occasion of the club’s 50th anniversary. As the RORC looks forward to its centenary in 2025, the Club pays tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

A Book of Condolence has been created at: https://www.royal.uk/

Royal Ocean Racing Club - since 1925

The RORC was founded in 1925 to encourage long distance yacht racing and the design, building and navigation of sailing vessels in which speed and seaworthiness are combined. Today the club encourages ocean, long distance and other forms of yacht racing and yachting activity.
