South Coast Autumn Rally, 16-17 Sept 2017
September 16, 2017 - September 17, 2017
Rally and Laying-up Supper at Marchwood Yacht Club, Southampton Water
Members are invited to our autumn rally and laying-up supper on the weekend of 16th-17th September, at Marchwood Yacht Club, in the upper reaches of Southampton Water. This is the same venue as in recent years because the club is hospitable and its mooring pontoons are sheltered under most conditions. This year they have a new chef and catering team.
HW Southampton on the Saturday is at 0749 and 2024 which means that boats coming from the west can carry the flood from early afternoon. Those coming from the east can start with a civilised breakfast, leave their harbour at around high tide and then find a west-going stream in Spithead until lunchtime. Distant members are welcome to arrive by road.
We do not have to pre-book moorings or meals. However, it always helps the caterers if I can give them advance notice of our likely numbers. I expect to be away and out of touch during August, so it would be helpful if as many attendees as possible could contact me about one week in advance (tel 023 8084 4804 or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org).
This year there is no mooring fee. The MYC pontoon ramp and road gate have security locks. Early waterborne arrivals should try to make contact with the club’s OOD (Alan Saunders on that day). Car-borne arrivals should try to attract the attention of someone in the compound. The bar should open at about 1800.
I look forward to seeing you there.
