South Coast Autumn Rally, 8-9 Sept 2018
September 8, 2018 - September 9, 2018
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 8th-9th September, at Marchwood Yacht Club, in the upper reaches of Southampton Water. In recent years this has been an ideal venue and last year the club looked after us very well when a brief breakdown in the catering arrangements was rectified by their committee members cooking us a huge paella. This is always an enjoyable event. Even if you have not joined the rally in previous years, perhaps this year’s slightly earlier date could encourage you to come along??
Southampton tide times on the Saturday are: HW 1009, LW 1624, HW 2231. This is ideal for boats coming from the east, which can leave harbour close to HW and ride the ebb to Calshot. Those coming from the west can make a start with the last of the early morning flood.
We do not have to pre-book moorings or meals. However, it helps the caterers if I can give them advance notice of our likely numbers. It would therefore 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. (Until late August I expect to be at sea and out of touch).
If the weather turns bad, or if you moor far away, please come anyway – by car.
Last year the mooring fee was £10. The MYC pontoon ramp and road gate have security locks. Early waterborne arrivals should try to make contact with the club’s OOD. 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.
