Forthcoming Events and Bookings Status

Channel Isles (poss. incl. St. Malo) (30 May – 6 June) – £265.–

What better place to visit than the Channel Islands, one of the many attractions being the Duty Free possibilities, but what about the scenery and the challenging tidal conditions?

Sadly it has not been possible to fill sufficient berths to make this event viable.  If anyone is interested in pursuing something similar before the end of the summer please let the committee know.

Long W/E Poole/W’mouth. (8th. July) – £213.–

The date for this event has now been fixed as above, and with six berths confirmed the event is now full.

This is a change from the confines of the Solent and offers different scenery and some open water passages coupled with the challenge of navigating in less familiar waters and “Races” to be circumnavigated!

Last year’s event was very much enjoyed! Bookings as usual via ‘yours truly’

Meanwhile with best regards.
