The Royal Victoria Yacht Club would like to bring to your attention an important celebration taking place at the Club’s former premises in Ryde on Saturday, 21st May.   The Club’s members, and invited guests, have been granted rare access to the RVYC’s former premises at the Prince Consort Building in Ryde, scene of the hosting of the 1908 Olympic Yacht Races.   This event will take place in the privately owned, first floor Prince Consort Apartment, with its full-length balcony and spectacular Solent views.

Tickets to this event are limited but the RVYC is delighted to extend its invitation exclusively to members of the Bembridge Sailing Club (a maximum of 50 tickets only), in view of the close historical association between the two Clubs, and especially in relation to the 1908 Olympic Yacht Races in which, of course, Blair Cochrane’s Cobweb won a Gold medal.

The last remaining copies of the RVYC’s beautifully presented, limited edition book

1908 Olympic Yacht Races – a centenary celebration will be on sale at a special discount and there will be a small exhibition of material related to the 1908 Sailing Olympics, some of which will also be on sale for a donation.  This includes some limited edition prints of James Bartholomew’s painting of Cobweb in the 8-Metre race.  All proceeds from the sales will be used to help fund the RVYC’s RYA OnBoard scheme for young people.

For security reasons, admission to this event will be by pre-purchased ticket @ £5.00 only (to include a glass of Prosecco, light refreshments, tea and coffee).  Free entry for children over 10 years (accompanied by a responsible adult).  Each adult ticket will be entered into a raffle for a bottle of Champagne.  Numbered tickets will be available for collection on the door.
