The Crown – Season 1
The Crown focuses on Queen Elizabeth II as a 25-year-old newlywed faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world’s most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. The British Empire is in decline, the political world is in disarray, and a young woman takes the throne….a new era is dawning.
If you missed this hugely popular series on TV don’t worry as we will be screening it in our Upper Deck over the next few weeks on the following dates:
Thursday 26th April – 2 episodes from 8pm
Wednesday 2nd May – 2 episodes from 8pm
Wednesday 9th May – 2 episodes from 8pm
Wednesday 16th May – 3 episodes from 7pm
Suppers will be available to order – list in the bar.
We have 20 tickets available to RCYC Members for this lovely event – all the proceeds will go towards St Petroc’s and ShelterBox, two very worthwhile charities. The event will take place in our marquee on Sunday afternoon, 13th May, and the ticket price of Â£10 includes a cream tea. Tickets can be reserved by contacting the office but must be paid for in advance – cash only please as the money will be handed to the organisors on the day of the event.

Please note that due to staff holiday the office will open in the afternoons only for the next week commencing 23 April. Apologies for any inconvenience.
BE PART OF HISTORY!
CLUB â€œAMBASSADORSâ€ WANTED.
HELP HOST THE 50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS OF SUHAILIâ€™S MOMENTOUS GOLDEN GLOBE WIN WITH THE 2018 COMPETITORS.
Suhaili was famously the first yacht to be sailed non-stop around the world single-handed in the 1968-69 Golden Globe Race. RCYC members will know that her intrepid skipper (Sir) Robin Knox-Johnston stepped ashore at the Club (where the steps used to be!). Few people back in 1968 gave the 29-year-old merchant seaman any chance of winning the Golden Globe. But of the nine who entered, only one finished, 313 days later. And the rest is history.
Now, 50 years on, Suhaili is back on the water and will be arriving with Sir Robin in Falmouth to take part in a Parade of Sail on June 14 to mark the anniversary. It gets better: a number of other globe trotters including Gypsy Moth IV and Lively Lady will take part in the parade. Better still the complete fleet of the 2018 Golden Globe Race will be here too, prior to the SITRaN Challenge charity race to Les Sables dâ€™Olonne as a warm-up to the 2018 Golden Globe itself.
And this is where Club Members come in and why we are
looking for Ambassadors.
Obviously we want to make the Golden Globe contestants feel appreciated during their time in Falmouth and very welcome at the RCYC. The fleet consists of 19 individuals of the following nationalities: Irish, Indian, Italian, Dutch, USA/Palestinian, French, Australian, Estonian, Turkish, Norwegian, Finnish, Hungarian, Russian and of course British/English: if you speak any of the languages (including the latter) regard yourself as Ambassador material. Ideally we need 19 Ambassadors who can attach themselves to the competitors during their time here, help them find their way around, welcome them to the Club, offer advice into best local outlets (sailmakers, chandlers, riggers, dentists, doctors, chemist, restaurants etc), or just simply speak their language.
Please all, do think if you could step up and represent the hospitality the RCYC is justly known for. It wonâ€™t be too onerous, it will be fun and you will be part of history in the making!
Andrew Pool has kindly offered to coordinate the â€œEmbassyâ€ and very, very much looks forward to hearing from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
