In October 2008 Sutton Harbour Hodings plc signed a £4 million deal to build a multipurpose facility for the RYA (Royal Yachting Association).
The five storey building was completed in 2010. It offers a reception area, meeting rooms, storage, a small retail unit, three floors of 24 en-suite bedrooms and a top floor clubroom, bar and dining area with views over the water.
As the hub of performance sailing for the RYA, it performed a crucial role in the run up to and during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games
