His Royal Highness Duke of York visits the Royal Victoria Yacht Club

Members of the Royal Victoria Yacht Club junior race team  discuss racing as the club welcomed its Royal Patron, His Royal Highness Duke of York, at the club’s Oak Bay headquarters overlooking Cadboro Bay on Sunday.

His Royal Highness met both junior and elite sailors, and spent time exploring club facilities and chatting with members.  His Royal Highness also presided over the official designation of the club dining room as the Swiftsure Dining Room, in honour of this year’s 70th running of the Swiftsure International Yacht Race and the 100th anniversary of the clubhouse opening at the Ripon Road location.
