The Royal Ocean Racing Club and Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, Cowes have revealed plans to merge their operations and create one club with clubhouses both in London (RORC) and Cowes (RCYC).

The idea developed following a strategic decision by RORC to establish an administrative base outside London principally to cater for its growing race management team, which it requires to administer the increased number of races run by RORC. At the same time, RCYC, Cowes has been considering its own long-term future.

The obvious benefits, besides complementary spheres of activity (RCYC, Cowes runs inshore keelboat and dayboat racing and the RORC offshore), are sound operational efficiencies, prime locations in London and Cowes for the enjoyment of its combined membership and a home in Cowes for the large number of sailors who race with the RORC, plus a real opportunity to create a centre of excellence for yachting in Cowes.

Exact details of the merger have yet to be revealed, but the combined club will operate under the name of RORC, although the intention is to retain the Royal Corinthian name for use in connection with Cowes and Solent-based inshore racing activities, to differentiate between the two racing programmes. Members of both clubs have been advised of the proposal and that general meetings will be convened in time for the merger to become effective in the autumn, after the main summer season.

RORC Commodore Mike Greville commented: 'The idea for a merger came out of a strategic need for RORC to find a location for its growing race management team; as we began to explore it further, it became clear that the combination of their respective strengths would open exciting opportunities for both clubs which are not available to either alone. Having a substantial base in Cowes for the benefit of the team and members alike is a major step for RORC, together with the addition of several hundred members.'

RCYC, Cowes Vice Commodore Amanda Dreyer commented: 'A merger with RORC gives RCYC, Cowes an enlarged membership; the benefit of RORC's international brand; a strengthened financial base and a professional management team - an exciting opportunity for development and growth in Cowes.'
