History of the Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club.

Neil Libbey

Its official....the old  royal yacht building is coming down.   ECBC exchanged the property for a promise of $280, 000...a figure which will pay the private club's debts.

The "Royal Charter"  will move to another facility..and the century old building will be but a memory. Some expressions of disappointment front he broader community, but others opinions, some in the Cape Breton Post comments section...and others in social media are not quite as sentimental about the space.... and that may have something to do with the history of the club.

Neil Libbey has written a history of the Royal Yacht club..he joins us now.
