2014 Proposed Rallies

Hi all

The sailing season is almost upon us, so I thought I would give you some dates for your dairy before It all get clogged up with things you would rather not be doing.

Easter let’s start gently with out of Solent sailing as the weather can be unsettled at this time of year!


April 18th Portsmouth H/W 1415hrs Good Friday Target Lymington                              

Saturday 18th H/W 1500hrs Target Poole Harbour.

Sunday 19th H/W 1550hrs Target, Yarmouth

Monday 20th H/W 1700hrs Home port

Keeping  in the theme of going west, how about Weymouth.  We had a delightful  time last year & turnout was  excellent. It`s a lively port & you Moor in the center of town & no you do not have to wait for bridges to open you moor sea side of it. For those of us that can pinch the Friday on first bank holiday in May I think Weymouth would be good venue,  Stop off at Yarmouth & make it an easy first leg & return to home port via Lymington                                                                                                    


Friday 2nd  May Portsmouth H/W 1335hrs target Yarmouth

Saturday 3rd H/W 1510hrs target Weymouth.

Sunday   4th Lymington H/W 1550hrs 

Monday 5th H/W 1630hrs Home port.      


Saturday May 24th It`s down in the Year book as out of Solent. I am changing that to in Solent to give the small boat & the less ambitious sailors amongst us a chance to sail in company. I believe our commodore has  arrange to get a good discount at Port Hamble Marina in the Hamble & to eat / drink at the RAF Clubhouse.

Saturday May 24th Portsmouth H/W 0830hrs Sunday 25th H/W 0930hrs

If weather is settled, anchor  at Osbourne Bay,maybe with a picnic. If not New Town  Creek .


May 31 Island Harbour rally (IOW) H/W  Portsmouth  0405hrs

Sunday Jun 1st 1450hrs Home Port


Please note  sometimes we will have to cancel a trip due to bad weather forecast. This  is not done lightly but we must let restaurant and mariner’s  & alike know in advance so food is not spoiled, and berth’s re let. If we fail to do this they may not take our booking in the future. 

All of the above is still to be organised, therefore we require information and input from you

I.E number of boats & crew.

We do realise things change & you may cancel and that’s o/k as long as you let us know as soon as possible, asking at the last minute or just turning up  can be a bit of problem. Too save disappointment book early.
