RUYC Burgee Spotted in Cape Town - News Just In!


Unfortunately we have to advise that the burgee spotted at Royal Cape YC is not the one presented by Terry Fair at a stopover on the Round the World Race, but it was in fact presented by Brian Robinson who recognises his own handwriting on the luff.  So, somewhere in RCYC there is another RUYC burgee lurking. Can anyone find it?

If anyone else spots any RUYC evidence/memorabilia around the world please send in a photo.  You can do that via the Club Social Media links at the top of this page or direct with Facebook page, by Messenger, Twitter (@RoyalUlsterYC) or Instagram using #royalulsteryachtclub or simply e-mail
