An annual charity event when, for one day, club members transform the clubhouse
into a busy marketplace.
The Fayre is sponsored by 30 local companies. It attracts over 500 people who
come to take part in fundraising activities, buy gifts from 35 stalls that sell
a range of unique and interesting products and enjoy fabulous riverside views
whilst eating and drinking.
The Fayre raises funds for a number of local charities with support for
Wetwheels being the primary charity. Wetwheels Foundation offers opportunities
to help disabled people overcome their difficulties through sailing.
The Wetwheels Hamble boat is berthed at the Royal Southern Yacht Club. The Club
has specialist facilities to enable access that was installed by the club as
part of the Prince Philip Yacht Haven development.
Geoff Holt MBE DL, the founder of Wetwheels Foundation was sadly unable to open
the Christmas Fayre. However, the Yacht Club was delighted that Mims Davies,
Member of Parliament for Eastleigh, agreed to stand in for Geoff. She opened the
Christmas Fayre at the Royal Southern Yacht Club on Saturday 5th November at
