Royal Yacht Squadron Club House, Cowes

British Isles Genealogy | Isle of Wight

Royal Yacht Squadron Club House, Cowes.-The Club House was originally one of the fortresses built by Henry VIII. for the defence of the Island. In the time of Charles I. it became a prison. It is now rented from the Commissioners of Woods and forests by the Club. It is a scene of gaiety and animation during the first week in August, which is the Cowes week of the season. Crowds gather near the slipway to see the royal and noble passengers land when the yachting season is on. The Causeway leads to the Green which is crowded during the racing. On fireworks-night this thoroughfare is densely packed from end to end.
