RAYC Regatta - Cancellation on the Death of Her Majesty The Queen
The Admiral, Committee and all members of the Royal Artillery Yacht Club are saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Captain General of the Royal Regiment of Artillery.
Members of the Executive Committee held a meeting this evening and decided that as a mark of respect the annual Royal Artillery Yacht Club Regatta, due to take place this weekend in Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, is cancelled in full.
Rear Commodore (Offshore) will be in touch with entrants within the next 24hrs to discuss administrative and financial detail; the Club will aim to ensure no loss for entry or dining fees. We hope there will be an option, should you still wish to sail to Yarmouth under private arrangements, to transfer your dining booking to a private meal – but to re-emphaise there will no organised racing or social activity taking place. Crews no longer sailing to Yarmouth should cancel their moorings direct.Thank you for your understanding during this period of national mourning.
