RMYS member and owner of yacht Bellman, Dr Peter Coulter, has recently achieved on behalf of the Squadron the revival of a reciprocal relationship with Royal Thames Yacht Club in the UK. The Royal Thames is in the heart of London at Knightsbridge, and offers a beautiful clubhouse as well as spectacular accommodation. It is the oldest continuously operating yacht club in the world, and was founded in 1775. Racing for the club is conducted at Queen Mary SC and on the Solent, and they have a racing fleet of J/80s.
We are very lucky to have been able to restore reciprocity with The Royal Thames, and our sincere thanks go to Peter for his dedication and hard work on this relationship. We hope that members are able to benefit from his efforts, so if you are heading to London, please ask the RMYS office for a letter of introduction.
