Cruising went almost completely unrecognised by Victorian yacht clubs until, in 1880, a small group of enthusiasts led by Arthur Underhill founded the Cruising Club becoming the Royal Cruising Club in 1902. The Club’s principal objective was to encourage and facilitate cruising and the spirit of the new enterprise was engagingly summed up in the first few lines of the original rules. Since 1976, thanks to the hard work of many RCC members and other like-minded yachtsmen and women, the RCC Pilotage Foundation has been endeavouring to advance the education of the public in the science and practice of navigation. The Foundation publishes a wide range of pilotage information. The membership of the club, following an invitation process, is limited to 400 members, enjoys the same friendly intimacy that many years ago under the directive of Sir Arthur Underhill and a group of friends.
