Yachts: Round the Island Race via Lymington

Event Details

This is the CYC Round the Island Race and Cruise run the weekend after the main event and a little be more of a relaxed affair with a stopover berthing in Lymington on Saturday before we return the Chichester via the south side of the Island. HW Chichester is 14:32 BST, which suggests an 14:00 start at Chi Buoy to make best use of the westward tide. Dinner venue will be a surprise as we will be arriving in Lymington quite late.

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 early the next day, those taking part in the return event on Sunday will have to get up at dawn (as usual ☹) to ensure we can get out past Hurst before the tide has other ideas. The route will be around the south of the Island. For those not taking part in the return 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 the Friday evening before. Anyone who has not been on one of our competitive cruises before and is daunted by the term ‘race’ please don’t be. If you would like to ask any questions before signing up please give James a call or drop an email to .
