A More Visible and Tantalising Welcome

Festival of Sails Chairman, Paul Buchholz, expressed his excitement about the new entrance, stating that it was designed to establish the atmosphere right from the start. The goal is to invite people to explore and join the festivities at the RGYC clubhouse, where the main entertainment and presentation areas will be located. The new area offers more options for visitors to relax, sit back, and enjoy the fantastic atmosphere.
