As usual, our CYC Round the Island Race and Cruise will berth overnight at Lymington, on the Dan Brown Pontoon. HW Chi is 14:46, so we’ll have a 12:30 start at Chi, so as to make best use of the westward tide. Dinner will been provisionally booked at the Mayflower who always seem to cope well with our considerable numbers.
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. Think of it as a cruise with a bit of competition thrown in. For those taking part in the return race on Sunday, the route will be around the back of the Island – for those not taking part in the race you may either like to take advantage of the tides to take the long route around the back, or the more direct route home through the Solent. As usual, we will hold a briefing in the club at 2100 on Friday.
