Club Member History

This first submission comes from Ivor White. Ivor is one of the clubs longest standing members of over 35 years and appears in the centre left of this photo with his late father Alf. Also present in the photo is Mike Marchant our other longest standing member. We are not sure who joined first but what we do know is once you’re caught by the bug of Radio controlled sailing you might just find it becomes a lifelong passion.

The Ryde Model Yacht Club team took time off from their match against Lymington at the Canoe Lake, Ryde, for this shot. On the left is John Buttigieg followed by, 4th back is Ivor White and 6th back is Mike Marchant. In the foreground is Keith Whitting with George Matthews.

This was an article that appeared in the IOW county press.

An interesting picture of the Ryde Boating lake C 1925 as it was originally designed, before the council in recent years ruined it by adding an island in the middle to support wildlife.
