WHCC burgee



Newbury Yacht Club offers our members a warm welcome at their meetings (as we welcome them to ours). They gather on the second Thursday of each month, 7.45 pm, at their meeting place, the Royal British Legion Club, Haig House, Pelican Lane, Newbury RG14 1NP. The hall is in the road behind The Bacon Arms and The Chequers Hotel, fairly close to the Clock Tower.
They always run an interesting programme, and I can vouch for their hospitality to WHCC members. We will keep you posted about their programme as we learn it.

Henley Offshore Group operates at Henley Rugby Club in a similar way to us, but unfortunately often clashes, in that we often both choose the same day-of-the-month. They are welcoming to visitors. For details, contact their Commodore,
