RNVR Yacht Club Fitting Out Party 2011

  • The RAF Yacht Club, Hamble


  • -
The RAF Yacht Club have kindly allowed us to hold our Fitting-Out lunch in their excellent club house.

For those attending by boat the club does not have berths available.  However, the MDL Hamble Point Marina is just
upstream of RAFYC.  There is a gate directly onto the pontoons from the club’s garden and this can be left unlocked if we have boats moored in the marina.  Berthing charges, per day, in the marina will be £3.32 per metre for boats up to 12.5 metres and £4.09 per metre for larger boats.    Berths must be vacated by 1100 hrs unless by prior arrangement with the marina.  The marina telephone number is 023 8045 2741.

For those attending by car, the club’s car parking is limited and will be needed for their own members.  However there is a “Pay and Display” car park next to the Royal Southern Yacht Club.  This is a little more than 100 yards from the RAFYC.  The charge for parking is 50p per hour up to 12 hrs.  There is also a car park off The Square in Hamble.

Our party will have the use of the Club’s bars before and after lunch. It will be a cash bar and orders for wine for lunch may be made at the bar beforehand.  The club has 4 house wines all priced at £12 a bottle.  The menu is as follows:
  • Duck and Orange Pate
  • Roast Beef with Seasonal vegetables
  • Bread and Butter Pudding with Devonshire cream
  • Tea/Coffee
The cost of the lunch is £25.00.  The rig is Blazers and Club Tie or equivalent.  Those with special dietary needs can be catered for but we would ask you to make your requirement known in advance.

An update from David Monks, event organiser....

Following a recce to the RAF Yacht Club and with over 60 members already attending, this year’s Fitting Out Luncheon looks set for success (all we need now is some nice weather!)

On catering, the chef has proposed replacing the planned Roast Beef with Roast Pork as he considers the pork to be better quality at present and I hope you will be happy to accept his expert opinion on the day. Similarly he is offering to provide a light dessert such as chocolate mousse with Devonshire cream as an alternative for those who would find the planned Bread & Butter Pudding a bit too filling! He is happy for us to advise him of your choice of dessert on the day. 

Our party will have the use of a dedicated bar before and after lunch as well as the use of the splendid terrace overlooking the Hamble.  It will be a cash bar and orders for wine for lunch may be made at the bar beforehand.  The club has 4 house wines all priced at £12 a bottle and having sampled some of the Club Red and Club White I’m sure that members would find these most acceptable!

On-line registrations are now held open until Thursday 14th April, at which point bookings will end so David can inform the RAFYC of numbers.
