A new Admiral for the RACYC

We are delighted to announce that Brig Alex Potts KRH has taken over as Admiral of the Club. A keen sailor, Brig Alex also owns his own yacht Corncockle, which he keeps in Gosport alongside White Knight 7 and the other Corps yachts. We look forward to seeing both of them on the water and enjoying his support and guidance.

We also thank Gen Adrian Bradshaw for his service as the previous Admiral and wish him all the best for his continuing role at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea.

RACYC overall winners of the Army Offshore Regatta 2022

The Royal Armoured Corps Yacht Club entry sailing on the club yacht White Knight 7, were the overall winners of the 2022 Army Offshore Regatta. The team narrowly held of the RE YC entry on their J109 Trojan, with close racing which saw finishes seperated by seconds despite the course lengths varying from 20 - 70 nm. Well done to the team and good luck in 2023!

Ready for a busy year White Knight 7 is undergoing some well deserved care and attention to keep her at the high standard enjoyed by club members. Amonst the usual antifouling, polishing and deep clean she is also now sporting brand new cruising and racing mainsails and new cushions for the cabin. Thanks to the bosun and his work party for their efforts.
