Christmas Fayre at the Royal Southern Yacht Club

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 10.30am.

Our Commodore Karen Henderson-Williams was recently interviewed by Sasha Twining on BBC Radio Solent's H20 slot.
Karen was asked about her childhood and how she got into sailing with her parents, how she progressed from dinghies into keel boats and about her role in helping to develop youth sailing at the Club. She explained her current role as well as her stewardship of the Royal Southern as only the second lady Commodore in the Club's 179 year history. Karen also discussed her aims and objectives for the Club going forward. It's a great listen, and we hope you enjoy it.
