Sailing / Yacht Club
KSSS was founded in Stockholm in 1830 under the name the Swedish Sailing Club (Svenska Segel Sällskapet). The club was founded at present day Skeppsholmen in Stockholm by some of the city’s wealthiest persons, who under a common flag, wanted to arrange yacht-racing within Stockholm’s environs. At this time associations and clubs in Sweden had just begun to spring up, and KSSS became Sweden’s second non-profit association, after Uppsala Swimming Club.
