Royal Torbay Yacht Club is thrilled to be awarded RYA Club of the Year for 2019, thank you so much to everyone who voted for us. We were also awarded special recognition from the judges for "Fantastic Facilities" following improvements to our clubhouse and activities offered in 2017 and 2018.
Our Commodore, Adrian Peach, was in London to be presented with the award along with Vice Commodore Phil Rumbelow and committee member Bob Penfold. 2018 was an exciting year for the yacht club and 2019 is looking to be even more so!
Upon winning, Adrian said, "This award means such a lot to us as a club, it’s been a great experience. We’re a club of volunteers, and as volunteers, it’s so nice to have the recognition that this brings."
Chief Executive of the RYA, Sarah Treseder said: “The club has not only taken steps to create new pathways into participation but has broadened and improved the range of activity that it offers. As a result, the club has increased its membership and is extremely well placed to grow and thrive for many years to come.”
