This is the CYC Round the Island Race and Cruise, with stopover berthing on the Dan Bran Pontoon in Lymington, for the first time in a few years.
HW Portsmouth is 11:40 BST, which suggests an 11:00 start at Chi Buoy, so as to make best use of the westward tide. Dinner venue will be a surprise, to be arranged depending on the numbers involved. Any boat that would like to take part in the race is welcome: you do not need to be an experienced racer to take part; & cruising-only participants are very welcome.
With a total of 3 bits of CYC silverware up for grabs over this weekend, entry to the race list is recommended – and it all adds to the fun.
With LW Portsmouth at 0527 on Sunday, those taking part in the return event on Sunday will have to get up before dawn (back to “normal” for this event). The route will be around the south of the Island.
For those not taking part in the 2nd race there is the option of a later start, & the more direct route home through the Solent.
As usual, we will hold a briefing in the club at 2100 on Friday.
Bookings are no longer available for this event.
