Our thoughts go out to our chef, Naomi Hickin, on the tragic loss of her long time partner Rick Read. Rick passed away suddenly, yet peacefully, on Sunday evening.

Out of respect for Naomi and our staff, RAYC will be closed from midday on Friday 26th August. (The club will not be open for dinner on Friday evening.)

The cafe will reopen at 8:30am on Saturday morning.
