Vintage & Classics Exhibition © RLymYC

A unique exhibition of vintage vehicles and classic boats to celebrate 100 years of the Royal Lymington Yacht Club. Book your free tickets now for a unique Vintage and Classics Exhibition taking place from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 7th May 2022.

All are welcome at this celebration of the Club's centenary with a look at how boating and transport have evolved over the past one hundred years.

The exhibition will include a fascinating display of vintage vehicles including cars, motorbikes and bicycles alongside beautiful classic yachts and dinghies owned by members and friends - and dating back to the early days of the Club.

The unique showcase will include classic vessels on the pontoon and vintage dinghies next to the Club, many of which were designed and built locally in Lymington, such as a West One Design yacht that was one of five produced by Berthon to establish a Class at the Yacht Club.

Included in the display will be an original wooden Firefly once owned by a member of the Club whose widow gave it to a young member to restore as part of his Duke of Edinburgh bronze award. The dinghy will be for sale at the Exhibition and all proceeds will be given to the charity Médecins Sans Frontières.

The Club was founded by Scow racers and visitors will have the opportunity to see a fantastic line up of prams including the famous 11-foot pram, the Lymington River Scow, designed and built by Lymington boatbuilder Dan Bran.

Berthon will be presenting their original folding Lifeboat, a design pioneered in 1854 by the Reverend E. L. Berthon that would eventually help to normalise ships carrying adequate safety boats.

A number of vintage cars and bikes will be on display ranging from 1901 steam cars to a 1969 E-Type Jaguar. Car enthusiasts will be delighted with the exhibition of privately owned vehicles which will include a Bentley, a Morgan, a Frazer Nash, an Austin Seven, a Triumph and much more!

All are welcome to this open event enabling both members and visitors to take a good look at some vintage classics! Refreshments will be available to purchase at the Club throughout the day, including tea and coffee and vintage goodies to eat.

To attend this free event, book your free tickets in advance at rlymyc.org.uk/vintageday.
