Solent Rally 2015


The sun has come out just in time for the start of the 2015 rally season which kicks off with the popular Solent Rally on Friday 1st May to Monday 4th May, closely followed by the Club Nautique rally and dinner at Sussex Yacht Club on Friday 15th May and then the Talla Hina Race, Brighton Rally and Young Carers Charity day on the weekend of 16th & 17th May.

This year the Solent Rally will include a race down to the forts at Portsmouth (See race handbook for further race details), followed by Friday night at Haslar marina and dinner at the Castle Inn.  A leisurely start on Saturday morning will allow enough time for a spot of shopping at Gun Wharf or time to nurse those hangovers from Friday night! From Haslar we will sail to Cowes where will moor at the Royal London Yacht Club upriver pontoon and have a BBQ (20.25 per head inc. dessert) at their club house on Saturday evening. On Sunday we will sail from Cowes to Chichester harbour where we will spend the night at Itchenor and eat at the Ship Inn (17.95 per head for two courses). The rally will return at leisure to Shoreham on Monday 4th April.

Please also let me know if your crew has any special dietary requirements and need an alternative to the BBQ menu listed below. Please send me all information by NO LATER THAN MONDAY 27th April to
