This is THE event for all members to attend and we hope that we will see enough offshore and dinghy sailors to keep the friendly rivalry going! Our annual race and party is an institution and open to all.
This year we return to Cowes. On Friday night we will pick up the boats, on Saturday morning we set sail and there will be light hearted but competitive racing in the Solent followed by a Black Tie Dinner and Party on Saturday evening at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Cowes.
After the race but before the dinner we will have the traditional pontoon party (where we usually sink a pontoon – keep your wellies on!) then it’s off to the showers, on with the suits and frocks and up to the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club with its glorious views across the Solent. This is a magnificent venue for a splendid evening that will include reception drinks on the lawn, a sumptuous dinner in the marquee, prize giving and then dancing until late.
Sunday is a free sailing day but we may arrange some more informal racing for those that can get up in time. Alternatively (wind permitting) rafting or anchoring up somewhere for Sunday lunch.
The event is open to all members, beginners and experts and is usually a very sociable way to try a bit of yacht racing. Don't worry, the racing is more gentle than some of the more formal races so do not fear if you think it is too much for you......this is not the Fastnet, more like a half-day ARC!.
We have chartered a small fleet of J109s for the event but the event is open to all and we would love as many boat owners as possible to join in - there will be three racing fleets, J109 one design, IRC, and White Sail, thus increasing the chances of getting a prize!
Cost is £220 per person for the club chartered J109s (or £210 if you book by 24th August and pay by 30th August); and for members boats £75 per person (or £70 if you book by 24th August and pay by 30th August).
So sign up now.....
