    • Hi Raymond
      I’m not sure if you are addressing your request to the REYC or to all visitors to the MSBA website. I suggest you contact the following whose details you can find under Members on the website: Victory Moorings, Rochester Cruising Club and Beacon Boatyard.
      Best wishes and good luck

  2. Hi,

    This might be a bit of a longshot, but here goes. I work for the Big C Cancer Charity in Norfolk. Some while ago we had a donation that included a folder of yacht related sketches. The front of the folder reads; ‘The Complete Yachtsman’. Then it says, ‘ Maj. J (or F) E A Rogers, R.E. There are a number of humourous sketches some of which show some warships and others that have R.E. Yacht Club on some pennants. As I said, maybe a longshot, but are you able to cast any light on the artist?
    Regards Jeff Anderson
