THE ROYAL NAVY CLUB

of 1765 & 1785 (United in 1889)

The Royal Navy Club (charity no. 248962) uniquely connects officers qualified for sea command in the Royal Navy, serving or retired. It also provides opportunities for members to dine together in order to renew friendships, exchange professional views and network. It has an unbroken history of RN sea command from 1765 and is proud to list Admiral Lord Nelson amongst other significant British naval sea commanders since.

Our charitable purpose is to support needy widows, widowers, siblings, orphan children and dependants of former members.

NEXT DINNER – FOUNDERS DAY 2022

Given a fair wind, we will celebrate our Founders with a dinner on Thursday 3 February onboard HQS WELLINGTON in London, moored alongside on the Thames embankment opposite Temple Tube station. Our chairman, Vice Admiral Sir Charles Montgomery KBE, will preside with the Admiralty Board as our guests and, it is hoped, speeches by both the Secretary of State for Defence and our First Sea Lord. No members’ guests are permitted as is usual on this occasion. Pre-dinner drinks will be available onboard from 1815, sitting down to dine at 1900. There will be a cash bar available post-dinner for a nightcap (or 2!).
