Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania
|Clubhouse||Derwent river, Hobart|
The Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, is the largest yacht club in the Australian state of Tasmania, and is best known for its role as the finishing destination for the annual Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. The club sports a range of facilities, from an 120-berth marina to on-site maintenance facilities.
Originally known as the Derwent Sailing Boat Club, for its location on the Derwent River in Hobart, the club was founded in 1880. It was called such for thirty years until, in 1910, King Edward VII granted the organisation permission to use the prefix "Royal".
