The Royal Marines Sailing Club (RMSC) has been in existence for many years; its aim is to actively promote and develop all aspects of sailing and cruising throughout the Corps.
For Yachtsmen, the Club owns 2 yachts, a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 26 named TERRAPIN III (4 Berth) and a Hallberg Rassy 342 called OCEAN WAVE (6 Berth).
Both yachts are based at Whale Island in Portsmouth and are available for charter to RMSC members (see our charter yacht page on the website for more details).
For the charter of TERRAPIN III and OCEAN WAVE OF ALBANY – contact: RMSC
Any serving or retired Royal Marine can become an RMSC Branch Member. You can join by paying £30 followed by a £15 per year continued membership fee.. Membership entitles the holder to charter either of the yachts at rates that no civilian charter organisation could come close to matching, as well as offering a rich source of experienced sailors with which to enjoy the sport. As long as there is, one RMSC member onboard, families and friends are more than welcome. Additionally, close ties are maintained with the RNSA and both serving and retired Royal Marines enter into the yachting, dinghy and windsurfing events.
The RMSC is a separate entity to ‘The Camber’ which is located next to Stonehouse Barracks in Plymouth and is home to the 2 Corps yachts, PER MARE and SARIE MARIAS, as well as a plethora of dinghies, which are specifically for serving personnel to conduct Adventure Training.
