The Royal Artillery Yacht Club (RAYC) aims to encourage sailing and seamanship among all members and to promote sailing in the Royal Artillery; providing opportunities, encouragement, funding and support to all members of the Royal Regiment, the Club and their families who wish to participate in the sport for adventurous training, competitive and recreational benefit.

The Club seeks to develop key skills and qualifications amongst its members in the four disciplines of Offshore, Dinghies & Dayboats Windsurfing and Kitesurfing. In addition, the Club provides training in powerboat handling, management and safety. It does this by arranging training opportunities, running centrally coordinated events and by providing expert advice, equipment and financial support to those who seek to develop their own sailing ambitions.

Bombardier III arrives in Gosport

Bombardier III arrived at Gosport at 0300 on Thursday 29th October after a gruelling delivery trip from Kiel. The skipper, Richard Grimwood assisted by Lt Col Tim Wood, Lt Andrew Mason and Matthew Sleap, motored through the Kiel Canal, then sailed the German and Dutch Coast as far as Scheverningen. The bosun, Ian Thornton then joined Richard for the final cross-channel sail. Richard had to contend with and solve a number of challenging situations to bring her home.
