various venues available.

Welcome to the Royal Cape Yacht Club, a beautiful setting amongst the yachts within the Cape Town Port, for your social gatherings or celebrations.


While the Regatta Centre is our flagship venue accommodating up to 350 wedding guests at a time, we also welcome smaller private celebrations in our upstairs Chart Room, The Galley overlooking the Marina and The Main Hall in the heart of the venue, steeped in sailing tradition. RCYC is not subject to load shedding as we are situated in the Port and noise restrictions don’t apply. Safe and free parking is available at the club.

We look forward to hosting your engagement party, wedding , vow renewal and later on baby shower – in fact, anything that calls for a celebration. For more info on our venues please contact Christa Badenhorst on
