Snippets from Club History - 1919

23/1/2019

A few snippets gleaned from Ed Wheeler's Pictorial History of the Club.

1919 - The Club was attempting to resume a semblance of pre-war activities.  The Minutes show good co-operation with the Ballyholme Sailing Club (not yet Ballyholme Yacht Club) in the matter of starting guns, co-ordination of fixtures etc.  This is Ballyholme YC's Centenary Year - long may the good co-operation contiunue!

20/9/2018

Congratulations to RUYC member Hal Sisk on wining the Concours d'Authenticite - condition and originality with Peggy Bawn his 1896 G.L. Watson designed Gaff Cutter.  The honour was awarded at The third Hamble Classics Regatta hosted by the Royal Southern Yacht Club, over the weekend of 15-16 September.  The Regatta, another stunning success with 75 classic and spirit of tradition yachts entered for two days of racing in sunshine and breeze. Building on the success of the two previous regattas, there were entries from as far afield as Falmouth and Ipswich, with some boats returning for the intense but well-spirited racing and others simply to enjoy the fun.

Suvretta - Acquisition and Repair by Ivan and Colin Nelson

1/9/2018

At the end of the fifties and at the beginning of the sixties my brother Colin was a member of the RUYC. He got an opportunity to acquire a good racing yacht - the West Solent Class, 'Suvretta' This is the story of her acquisition and repair.

The offshore scene was thriving in those days - just before the glassfibre revolution, and many of the boats were converted inshore racers, and others the epitome of offshore racers - boats like Ceara, Maid of York, Capella of Kent etc.

Bangor Town Regatta - RUYC Rear Commodore Report

11/7/2018

Bangor Town Regatta – a note from the Rear Commodore

The big event of my tenure as RC has come and gone in what seems like a flash. The months of planning by the BTR Committee under the chairmanship of Jim Coffey resulted in a highly successful Regatta with an excellent turnout of keel boats and also of RS 200s and RS 400s for their Irish Nationals, held as part of the BTR. Seen from my vantage point on Witchcraft in NHC Restricted, the four days of racing were keenly contested in all classes. The Waverley World Championships also took place during the Regatta.
