by Ed Wheeler

Hardback book full of history and images of RUYC Bangor, Co Down
Our Price: £15.00

This year, RUYC celebrated its 150th Anniversary. As part of this, a new history of the Club has been written by incoming Rear Commodore Ed Wheeler

The book will launch on 30th November 2016 at 20.30 in the Gloucester Room where you will get the chance to meet the author and hear a short illustrated talk with an opportunity to ask any questions.

The book drew on a number of sources, not least the previous history written by Prof. James Nixon in 1999. Information has been trawled from minute books and scrap books dating back to the formation of the Club, from newspaper reports, from contemporary publications, newsletters and the reminiscences of members. The new history takes advantage of modern printing technology to include many more photographs, in full colour where available. It is a hardback volume in A4 portrait format.

This book is an indispensable guide to the Royal Ulster Yacht Club and will also make a fine Christmas present for anyone interested in the background to sailing in Bangor and Belfast Lough.

This A4 portrait hardback book is available for sale at the attractive price of £15 and will be signed by the author on request at the launch.
