The RAF Yacht Club have kindly allowed us, once again, to hold our Fitting Out lunch in their excellent club house.
For those attending by boat the club does not have berths available. However, the MDL Port Hamble Marina is just upstream of the RAFYC. There is a gate directly from their pontoons to the Club’s garden. A telephone call to the club should produce the code for the gate lock. The marina telephone number is 02380 452741 and the club’s telephone number is 02380 452208
For those attending by car, the club’s car parking is limited and will be needed by their own members. However there is a “Pay and Display” near the Royal Southern Yacht Club. This is little more than 100 yards from the RAFYC. The charge for parking is 60p per hour up to 12 hours. There is also a car park off The Square in Hamble.
Our party will have the use of the Club’s bars before and after lunch. It will be a cash bar and orders for wine for lunch may be made at the bar beforehand. The club has a good wine list including four house wines all priced at £12 a bottle.
The lunch menu is as follows:
Scottish Smoked Salmon with caper berries and lemon
served with granary bread and butter
* * * * *
Confit of duck leg served with a roast garlic scented pomme puree, market vegetables and a rosemary and red wine jus
Steamed apple upside-down cake with crème anglais
Coffee served with an After Eight mint
The cost of the lunch is £30. Those with special dietary needs can be catered for.
The club has two double and two single rooms which can be booked through the club’s office if they are not needed for their own members. One double is en suite and the others use the club’s facilities. The club’s office may be able to provide details of convenient B&B’s. Those arriving on the Friday evening may use the club’s facilities as “visiting yachtmen”.
Bookings should be made using the Register button, as soon as possible and by 5th April at the latest in order to facilitate lunch and berth bookings
