Rallies at Sussex Yacht Club / Brighton Rally 2015
« on: April 20, 2015, 03:08:12 PM »
This year’s Brighton Rally will be on the weekend of 16th and 17th May. The rally will start on Saturday morning with the Talla Hina race to Brighton and the detailed race information can be found in the Sailing Handbook. After the race we will moor on the visitor berth at Brighton Marina and have dinner (See below for menu choices) at Brighton Yacht Club at 7.30pm. Sunday will see SYC’s annual charity day and this year we will host a new charity, The Young Carers, who are young people who spend their lives caring for sick relatives. This day gives them an opportunity to relax and enjoy what we all see as a normal day out on the water. However, in order to allow this to take place, we need volunteer boats and crew to take them out. They will arrive at Brighton Marina at approximately 10.00am on Sunday when they can meet everyone, familiarise themselves with the boat before going out for a sail/ cruise and enjoy the display by the RNLI. All boats that volunteer will receive a free mooring in Brighton Marina on the Saturday evening. If you would like to participate please email me your boat name, along with the crew names and menu choices for dinner on Saturday evening to ukhazel@yahoo.co.uk BY NO LATER THAN FRIDAY 8TH MAY.   

Brighton Yacht Club Menu Choices are;

Mains (£8)
Goulash & rice
Fish pie & vegs
Vegetarian Moussaka
Steak and Ale Pie (£2 supplement)

Dessert (£3)
Apple Crumble with cream/custard

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.

Rallies at Sussex Yacht Club / Re: Pactolus Race & Rally
« on: July 24, 2014, 12:14:57 PM »
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.
 
Regards,
 
Hazel

Rallies at Sussex Yacht Club / Pactolus Race & Rally
« on: July 16, 2014, 03:10:34 PM »
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 ukhazel@yahoo.co.uk.
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

The start of the rally season is finally almost upon us!

It kicks off with the Solent Rally on Friday 2nd May. The rally will begin with a race from Shoreham to the forts off of Portsmouth. The rally will then continue on to Cowes where walk ashore pontoons have been reserved for the Solent Rally at the Folly Inn on the River Medina where we will have a group meal at 8pm.

When arriving at the River Medina and passing the port hand market number 10, could all yachts please call ‘Folly Launch’ on VHF channel 72 for berthing instructions. At the Folly Inn we have a group table booked for dinner but everyone should order off of the main menu and pay at the bar. In addition to the main menu they have a special Grill night where a steak and a drink can be ordered from £9.95 per head.  The Grill menu can be found here https://www.oldenglishinns.co.uk/files/5013/8124/6440/Grill_Friday.pdf
On Saturday we have arranged what we hope will be an interesting and exciting treasure hunt sailing around the Solent (details will be given out during dinner on Friday evening) before entering the Beaulieu River for an evening at Gins restaurant at the Royal Southampton Yacht Club (dress code is Cowes Rig). The set menu for our rally at Gins is below, however please let me know if you have any special dietary requirements and require something different to the set menu.

In the Beaulieu river we have arranged 10 walk ashore pontoons plus river moorings. When approaching Gins please call the Bosun on channel 77 with call sign ‘Sea Echo’ and they will give you further direction.

On Sunday we leave the Beaulieu River and head for Itchenor where we will moor up and then go ashore for dinner at the Ship Inn. The Ship Inn have organised a two course dinner for the rally. Please let me have your menu choices from the menu at the bottom of this email by NO LATER THAN FRIDAY 25 APRIL.

If you haven’t already done so, please let me have your boat name and crew names together with their menu choices all by Friday 25 April.

We are also organising fleeces for the Solent Rally with the SYC logo on. They can be purchased for £13 per fleece and can also be ordered with your boat name on. If you would like to order a fleece please let me know the quantity and sizes that you require and whether you would like to include your boat name, along with the exact spelling. I will need to order these straight away to get them in time for the rally so please let me have the quantities required by no later than Thursday 17th April.

I hope to see you all there for what is looking like another great Solent Rally!
