Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh will visit the Land Rover BAR base on Friday and meet the design team. Here he is helming his Dragon “Bluebottle” in 1957. The young crew might be Prince Charles.
Prince Philip, now 95 years old and husband of Queen Elizabeth, enthusiastically campaigned his Dragon in the Cowes Week regattas. He is a former commodore of the Royal Yacht Squadron, whose subsidiary, Yacht Squadron Racing, is represented by Land Rover BAR.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be in Portsmouth to watch Sunday’s racing and to present the awards at the prizegiving.
