HRH Duke of Edinburgh

Published by at 08:04 under Club Notices,Racing

Dear All

As you know the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh will take place during racing on Saturday afternoon. Whilst some sporting events have been cancelled we believe that Prince Phillip – a keen sailor himself, would not have wanted us to stop. You can almost hear him say “just bloody get on with it”…

We have therefore decided that racing will go ahead and the Race Management Team will endeavour to have the first race finished before 15:00. This may mean it might be a bit short.

At 15:00 there will be a long blast from the Committee Boat’s starting hooter, signalling the start of the Nation’s One Minute Silence. The Ensign will be lowered for the duration. The same will happen on shore for those enjoying the Club’s “Car Park Bar”.
