The Princess Royal at Hykeham Sailability Club

Comments (0)

The Princess Royal visited Lincolnshire today for engagements at a sailing club for people with disabilites and a church.

She was the guest of honour at Hykeham Sailability Club as the organisation celebrated its fifth birthday.

Princess Anne spent more than an hour at the club's base at Apex Lake, off Newark Road in North Hykeham, meeting members and volunteers.

The organisation's activities are part of the Royal Yachting Association’s Sailability programme, of which the royal is a patron.

Before heading to North Hykeham this afternoon Princess Anne visited Boston.

She attended a special service at St Botolph’s Church – known as the Boston Stump – in her role as a patron of the restoration project at the building.

She then arrived at Apex Lake at about 12.40pm, where she chatted to people from the club and cut a birthday cake.
