New ‘Royal Sailing Exhibition’ at Britannia

In Summer 2010 a new ‘Royal Sailing Exhibition’ opens at The Royal Yacht Britannia in Edinburgh.

This new exhibition tells the story behind the Royal Family’s passion for sailing. The focus will be on the annual Cowes Week regatta in the Isle of Wight, the Royal Family’s private holiday sailing in the Western Isles of Scotland, and past royal racing yachts.

In addition to this exhibition the classic and elegant 1930s racing yacht Bloodhound, owned by The Queen and Prince Philip in the 1960s, will be moored alongside Britannia. Visitors will have the opportunity to view one of the most successful racing yachts ever built. (Group organisers should note that from 2011, Bloodhound will be sailing on private charter during July and August and will not be on view to the public at Britannia.)

Special group rates are available for groups of 15 or more when pre-booked. For further information call our Group Sales Office on 0131 555 8800 or email groups@tryb.co.uk
