Whitby Yacht Club, Whitby, North Yorkshire
The Whitby Yacht Club (WYC) was formed in June of 1932 in Whitby, North Yorkshire. The Club sponsors a varied program consisting of ocean sailing races, bay races, cruises and fishing competitions. It should not to be confused with the Whitby Yacht Club of Ontario, Canada, although the two cities are in fact sister cities. Interesting enough, the WYC clubhouse is located on Pier Road above the Royal Navy Lighthouse Museum. Once an RNLI lifeboat station, this Victorian double boathouse now includes lifeboat history with paintings, medals, photographs and mementos from famous wrecks and rescues.
The burgee pennant of the club has the blue club logo near the hoist end and the blue letters W.Y.C. on the fly side on the yellow field.
