The Times of London – Battle of Trafalgar

Battle of Trafalgar

The Club is extremely grateful to Mr Vernon Goss, Honorary Life President of the Point Yacht Club and Trustee of Sailing KZN, for his generous donation of an original extract from The Times of London dated 7th November 1805.Times Newspaper

This wonderful historic artifact provides a remarkable account of the Battle of Trafalgar and the final moments of Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson. It is entirely appropriate that this antique will be placed on permanent display in the Trafalgar Room for the admiration, appreciation and education of members and future generations.

The Club is grateful to Mr Goss for his generous donation and ongoing friendship with the Royal Natal Yacht Club. We share his commitment to the promotion of yachting in Durban and preservation of all aspects of our maritime heritage.
