The RSYC have kindly allowed us to hold our Fitting-Out Lunch in their excellent club house and this will be preceeded by the Christening Ceremony for the new club yacht “Volunteer” alongside (now a separate event on the website).

This has proved to be a very popular event and there is limited capacity in the RSYC Dining Room. Therefore bookings can only be accepted for the waiting list and should be emailed to the organiser, David Monks, at david.monks@inovarcorp,com.

The Royal Southampton Yacht Club is one of the oldest established yacht clubs in the country, receiving its Royal Charter in 1875. The main Clubhouse is located in the heart of Ocean Village, with panoramic views overlooking the marina.

Visiting by Sea
For those attending by boat the RSYC is based within the Ocean Marina with ample visitor moorings. If you wish to make use of this facility you must make arrangements directly with Ocean Marina (Tel. 023 8022 9385). The charge is £3.32 per metre up to 12.5m per day payable to the Bosun on arrival.

Visiting by Road
For those attending by car there is a “pay and display” car park next to the clubhouse. The charge is £1 per hour to a maximum of £8.

The Lunch
Our party will have the use of one of the club’s bars before and after lunch. It will be a cash bar and orders for extra wine for lunch will be taken by waiting staff during lunch.
