C.H help me!! cant remember the thread nor what site the discussion on RTYC was - where is it!! got info
RTYC - Royal Temple Yacht Club, founded in 1857 became a Royal Yacht Club 1858 with Queen Victoria as its Patron. In 1898 the Club moved to the Port of Ramsgate, Kent.
It got its name because it was based by the River Thames and was sited by the temple steps, where they used to sail from.
Bit of history for you all - Cant believe some of ya thought it stood for the Royal Torquay Yacht Club (which should say Torbay)
