Members Statement - Yacht Club


Thursday, 4 June 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton):

The Royal Brighton Yacht Club has a history going back to 1875. Last year it was awarded Victorian Yacht Club of the Year.

Despite its strengths, the government’s closure of Middle Brighton Pier has put jobs at the club at risk.

Funding safety upgrades to the pier will protect the iconic site and the surrounding infrastructure, including the historic Royal Brighton Yacht Club.
