PPYH Logo There’s a lot more to the Prince Philip Yacht Haven than the new walk ashore pontoons:
The new sea wall, half the total cost, will stabilise and protect our waterfront land for generations to come.
The raised capping is at a level determined by the Environmental Agency to keep out all predicted high tides.
The car parks will be levelled up and resurfaced.
The Splash Club and other dinghy users will have mud free access to the water at all times and tides via a new floating slipway.
People with disabilities will have direct access to boats afloat for the first time.
All Members will be able to enjoy al fresco dining on the new Quarter Deck with no mud in sight!
All berths will be fully serviced, and walk-ashore.
Some berths will be let for three years without decreasing the number in the annual ballot.

'Mead on Mud'
113 Members came to the Seminar about the Prince Philip Yacht Haven at the Club on Saturday 5th April 2014.
At the Seminar, Past Commodore Mark Inkster talked Members through the plans and emphasised the key role of re-building the sea wall to stabilise our land and minimise future flooding.
He introduced the World Premiere of the video - 'Mead on Mud' - in which Commodore David Mead gets his wellies on to show you the crumbling wall from the muddy side.

Turning This
Into This   originally published 1st June 2014

There’s a lot more to the Prince Philip Yacht Haven than the new walk ashore pontoons:
The new sea wall, half the total cost, will stabilise and protect our waterfront land for generations to come.
The raised capping is at a level determined by the Environmental Agency to keep out all predicted high tides.
The car parks will be levelled up and resurfaced.
The Splash Club and other dinghy users will have mud free access to the water at all times and tides via a new floating slipway.
People with disabilities will have direct access to boats afloat for the first time.
All Members will be able to enjoy al fresco dining on the new Quarter Deck with no mud in sight!
All berths will be fully serviced, and walk-ashore.
Some berths will be let for three years without decreasing the number in the annual ballot.

The Team - originally published 02/06/2014
The highly experienced Prince Philip Yacht Haven Team came together three years ago, led by then serving Commodore Mark Inkster.
He was joined by Gordon Craigen FCMA as Hon Treasurer. After a career in the City Gordon now lives and works locally.
Mark Inkster
Also an accountant in business by background, David Aspinall FCA is the Project Purser, ensuring that we keep to the budget. Past Rear Commodore Pat Aspinall qualified as a solicitor and Notary Public and latterly specialised in commercial property work. She has been very involved with leases and licences and all matters legal.
Past Commodore Barry Peddley FRICS has worked on obtaining consents for the Club for many years and has dealt with the Crown Estate and other land related matters.
Peter Nicholson knows the land well because he was one of the team that bought it from Rank Marine in the 1980s.
David Greenhalgh FICE has built large ports all around the world so it is fitting that he is now involved in building a very small one back home.
The Team is completed by Commodore David Mead, Past Rear Commodore Richard Campbell-Walter, till recently Chairman of the Executive Committee and Vice Commodore Chris Mansfield who is the current Chairman.
They are the Club’s highly qualified Prince Philip Yacht Haven Team now, but we should also recall the huge contribution from the late Past Commodore John Beardsley who lived the Project until his dying day, and also from Ian Redsell, until recently Commodore of our partners, the Royal Air Force Yacht Club.

The Supporters Club!
Here are just some Members of the Executive Committee, the Trustees and Members of the Sailing, House and Ladies Committees and the Project Team.
They, and all other Members of those Committees have pledged their support and already made donations to the Appeal – ‘because it’s what we all need to do’.
We hope that all Members will be supporters too.

Seventeen years ago, we raised the funds to pay for our ‘New Building’.
At the time, we couldn’t afford to re-build the sea wall so fixed it as best we could.

Two years later we made the first of many unsuccessful planning applications to join our pontoons to the shore.

Now, thanks to Mark Inkster and all of the Project Team, we are poised to start construction of the Prince Philip Yacht Haven.
All of us on the Committees have contributed to the Prince Philip Yacht Haven Appeal.

All Members will benefit from the Prince Philip Yacht Haven Project as the new sea wall will protect our land for many years to come.

RAFYC Commodore David Le Mere
with our Commodore David Mead
We raised nearly £500,000 for the new building in 1997, and I am confident that between us, we can do it again.
David Mead (Commodore)
On behalf of the Flag Officers, Trustees, and Members of the Executive, Sailing, House and Ladies Committees.
