Getting the boat out the window

A crane is called in to extract a twin hulled boat from the first floor.

The R.B.Y.C could be either the Royal Burnham Yacht Club or the Royal Berkshire Yacht Club but no information beyond these pics can be found.




Launching a model boat in Kensington Gardens

Mr. Montagu Cleeve of Eldon Road, Kensington launches his boat “Solaire” on the Round Pond, Kensington Gardens after 30 years work in May 1959.

The boat is a model of the 999 ton ship of the Royal Yacht Squadron in the 1920’s.

The Round Pond in Kensington Gardens is home of the oldest model yacht club in the country, the Model Yacht Sailing Association.
