Peta Stuart-Hunt has been re-appointed by the prestigious Royal Southern Yacht Club (RSrnYC) as its Marketing & Media Consultant covering most aspects of the Hamble-based Club’s requirements. The Club has extended Peta’s remit to include marketing strategy as it moves into an exciting new phase in tandem with the recently commissioned 66-berth Prince Philip Yacht Haven and expands both its on-water and shoreside capabilities and events.

Peta has worked with the RSrnYC for the past five years. She was initially brought on board in 2010 to help steer the Club through the 175th Anniversary celebrations in 2012 and she now serves on the Club’s Marketing Committee, continuing to help advise, drive and deliver the Club’s marketing & sponsorship initiatives.

The Royal Southern has recently been awarded the inaugural ‘Yacht Club of the Year’ Award by Sailing Today at the Southampton Boat Show and was also the recipient of the Yachts and Yachting ‘Club of the Year’ Award back in 2012.
