Default RNYC - Royal ... Yacht Club button

This button has been given two names:
Royal Navy Yacht Club and Royal Natal Yacht Club

Can anyone tell me which name is the right one?

Default Royal Natal Yacht Club button

Dear Mike,
Thank you very much. Royal Natal Yacht Club it is.
The hammond-turner website shows the button of the Royal Northern Yacht Club and its wreath of thistles, not the Royal Navy Yacht Club.

There is actually no such organisation as the Royal Navy Yacht Club and never has been - only the Royal Naval Sailing Association (RNSA).

To add to the topic,
I have this Victorian button to the Royal Victorian Yacht Club.
With N R in the center, possible Naval Reserve.
From memory this is a Canadian button made by Firman.

The letters in the centre are V.R. for Victoria Regina.
The club also had buttons without the band and text.
