Prince Philip also got to see the town's heritage gigs.
Chairman John Cuthill wrote to Buckingham Palace - and told Pirate FM what he wanted HRH to take away: "The memory of those wonderful craft which have been going let's face it, since 1812, the Battle of Trafalgar was in 1805, and also to see what a marvellous focal point it is for Newquay as a town.
"I was asked by the Lord Lieutenant to write a letter to Prince Phillip's secretary at Buckingham Palace saying why I thought he'd find it interesting. So, it went off and I thought I won't hear anymore ... and low and behold a letter came to the owing club saying he'd love to come and I just could not believe it."

Cornish fishermen also highlighted pressures on the industry as the Duke of Edinburgh visited Padstow Lobster Hatchery.
Prince Phillip met local businesses as well as he learnt more about the Duchy's research into sustainable fishing.
Town mayor Charlie Watson Smythe met him and told Pirate FM it is vital to secure the industry's future: "The lobster fishermen in Padstow are very keen to support the hatchery because in the long term it should support an industry that will support their children and grandchildren.
"Being the only one of its kind, it is the 'National' Lobster Hatchery, and had a lot of problems to start being the first one. But they seem to have resolved all of that and hopefully it will be a real boon for the future."
