Royal Escape Race Champagne Breakfast - The Old Ship Hotel

Thanks to the on going generosity and support of The Old Ship Hotel, SYC members can enjoy a complimentary breakfast on race day for this years Royal Escape Race.

On the 24th May 2024 the race will  start from a line off Brighton East Pier then on to Fecamp in France.

The start off Brighton is in recognition  that The Old Ship was once owned by Nicholas Tattersall of Brighthelmstone. Tattersall’s ship,”The Surprise” was renamed, The Royal Escape, became a serving Royal Navy ship and Nicholas Tattersall  was awarded a Royal Navy Commision in recognition of his role in the escape of Charles II. In 1670 he was given the prestigious position of High Constable of Brighton. That same year he acquired the Old Ship Hotel, and it is said that within the Old Ship there  are  timber beams taken from his ship the  Royal Escape.

Be at The Old Ship Hotel sharp at 07:30 for breakfast on 24th May 2024, to watch the boats leave on our historic annual race to Fécamp from the sea front terrace or, comfort of the Royal Escape Suite, in the hotel.

There will be champagne on arrival to toast the 44th Royal Escape Race

Please secure yourself a seat as numbers will be limited.
