Pactolus Race & Rally


We now have five boats interested in the Pactolus race on Friday 25 July
and just need one more yacht to reach the minimum number required to
race. Once we arrive in Fecamp, we have arranged dinner on the Saturday
night at Le Progress.
Some yachts will return from Fecamp to Shoreham on Sunday 27th due to
work commitments, but for all those who are able to continue, the
Pactolus race will be followed by a week of rallying around Northern
France. Exact destinations will be decided nearer to the time depending
on weather and tides.
If you are interested in either the Pactolus race or rally or would like
further information about it please contact me on
If you haven't already done so please let me know as soon as possible
whether you would like to join the Pactolus race, rally or dinner at Le
Progress as we need to achieve the minimum number of six boats for the
Pactolus rally before 18th July.
Many thanks,
Hazel Arnold
Rally Secretary

Dear all,
We now have six boats for the Pactolus race this weekend: Plover; Ocean Dream; Devil's Advocate; Mavrick; Karsha and Tyke.
Low water on Friday is at 05.01 BST so we have decided to start the Pactolus race on Thursday evening, going out on the 10pm lock and starting as soon as possible after this once everyone is around the East mark. The race course is likely to be start when East bears 90 degrees, Meridian to port, finish outside of Fecamp but the exact course will be read out once everyone is assembled by East mark on Thursday evening. Laurence has volunteered to be race officer for the Pactolus and he will broadcast the course on channel 37. 
On Saturday evening we have organised dinner for everyone at Le Progress restaurant in Fecamp at 6.30pm French time. If you would like to join please email me the number of places you would like me to confirm to the restaurant by no later than Wednesday evening.
Most boats will return to Shoreham on Sunday but others may continue along the French coast for the Pactolus rally. Please let me know if you are interested in continuing with the rally so that I can send out further information on this.
