YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE ‘ALL AT SEA’ TO ENJOY SAILING AT GREENWICH MILLENNIUM VILLAGE
As Cowes Week, the oldest and largest sailing regatta in the world draws to a close, latest figures from The Royal Yacht Association (RYA) show that sailing is becoming an increasingly popular pastime. Membership numbers were up to 106,100 at the end of 2015 and more than 17,500 new members joined last year. Those who are looking to live in the capital and still be able to get out on the water should consider the latest collection of apartments in the Millennium Terrace at Greenwich Millennium Village. GMV is an inspirational joint venture development by Countryside and Taylor Wimpey, supported by the Mayor of London, which is set very close to Greenwich Yacht Club on the Greenwich Peninsula.
Nautical lovers can take advantage of a range of facilities at Greenwich Yacht Club, which include rowing, motorboat, dinghies and cruiser boats, as well as a club bar with river views.
