"The Royal Yacht Squadron is one of the most prestigious yacht clubs in the world. Its clubhouse is Cowes Castle on the Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom. Member yachts are given the Suffix RYS to their names, and permitted to wear the White Ensign of the Royal Navy rather than the merchant Red Ensign worn by the majority of other UK registered vessels. The club's patron is Queen Elizabeth II and the club's admiral is Prince Philip who is also a former club commodore." (source wikipedia). The club was founded in 1815, an early member was King George IV. The squadron founded the America's Cup in 1851, today still yachting's most prestigious trophy. Robert Scott of Antartica was also a member, he sailed to Antartica in 1910 under squadron colours - a year after this brooch was made.
