Whitehall, London, November 17, 2018 – The 2018 Royal Ocean Racing Club Annual Dinner and Prize Giving was held at the Royal Horseguards Hotel, with over 200 guests attending the spectacular black tie event and where prize winners, competitors, crews, RORC members and guests celebrated the year’s achievements with the Royal Ocean Racing Club .
After a champagne reception, the dinner and prize giving was held in the theatre-style Gladstone Library. The Grade I listed hotel overlooking the Thames has strong links to the British Military and Gladstone has a fortuitous link to the 2018 Yacht of the Year. Every prize winner was roundly applauded as they took centre stage at the glamorous event. There was a huge ovation for the overall winner of the 2018 RORC Season’s Points Championship, British Soldier, and for the RORC Yacht of the Year, Ichi Ban.
Many thanks to the Royal Ocean Racing Club for hosting a fabulous season of offshore racing and the Royal Horseguards Hotel for hosting a wonderful evening, we look forward too defending our title in 2019!
