West Australian Yacht Clubs
Royal Perth Yacht Club
All these buttons are pre 1953 (King’s Crown).
The Perth Yacht and Boat club was established in 1876, although the club claims on its website to have existed since 1865. I can find no confirmation of this, however regattas had held since 1841.
The original club house was opened in 1889. The following year the Royal prefix was granted by Queen Victoria, and the club became known as the “Royal Perth Yacht Club”. A new club house was opened in 1953.
Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club
Established in 1896 on the banks of the Swan River in Freshwater Bay. It received the Royal prefix in 1935.
