Objectives

Founded in 1990, the 1805 Club is an international charitable organisation that commemorates and educates about the history and heritage of the age of sail, during the Georgian era (1714-1837), and the influence this period has played on the maritime world up through the present day .

 

As a charity, it is registered to the Charity Commission for England and Wales as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), number 1201272.

 

The Club’s activities encompass events; publications; projects; research; education about the lessons to be learnt in today’s world. The Club owns a number of valuable databases relating to ships, mariners and monuments of the era and has ambitions to create a single, authoritative virtual on-line museum to house and display its numerous and growing collection of on-line exhibits – articles; talks; original digital material, including its databases. Through the museum, people across the globe will be able to explore and learn about the topic, and academics will be provided with valuable source material.
