Life in the Royal Yacht Britannia through the eyes of a Crew Member

David Rushforth Public Speaker

During my exciting life which includes living in several countries worldwide, I served in the Royal Navy for 13 years. A period of which included serving in HMY Britannia from January 1976 to June 1979. Since leaving the Royal Navy in 1980 I have been an active member of the Association of Royal Yachtsmen and the Social Secretary since 2005. This entire Britannia experience has been fascinating and well worthy of sharing with others.

There are three flavours to the presentations with the intentions of meeting the requirements of specific audiences

1) Brief history of the Royal Racing Yacht Britannia culminating in the HMY Britannia story. Lots of stats and quite technically informative.

2) The initiation of the HMY Britannia build and the influences to the internal décor and general layout. 

3) A mixture of 1 and 2.
