Redesmere’s royal approval

Princess Anne visited Redesmere Sailing Club to help members mark the club’s Diamond Jubilee.

HRH The Princess Royal, president of the Royal Yachting Association formally opened the club’s newly extended foreshore, met members and enjoyed a trip onto the club’s 25 acre lake.

Commodore of Redesmere, Stuart Campbell said: ‘It was an incredible honour to welcome The Princess Royal to celebrate our Diamond Jubilee, and is something we will treasure. We are fortunate to enjoy an idyllic setting, but the improvements we’ve made over the past year have taken a real community effort from all our members, so it was special to have Her Royal Highness carry out the official opening ceremony, and mark another major milestone for us.’

Princess Anne presented members who had completed training courses with RYA certificates and met Elliot Hanson from Macclesfield, now on the British Sailing Team, (he began his training at Redesmere,)as well as groups from The Kings School and Macclesfield Sea Scouts; both of which use the facilities at Redesmere.
