This activity weekend was introduced last year and proved to be a massive success; all who attended wanted to see this repeated in the 2018 events list.
The ‘Dash’ element is the route filled with excitement taking you from your home port across to beautiful Bembridge, IOW. The ‘Splash’ element is where all members are speedily renting out kayaks, and paddle boards from the nearby retailer, then running into the fresh seas showing off their love of competitiveness or relaxation.
‘Tackt-isle-Adventures’ is a successful water sports company based at Bembridge harbour. You are independently required to contact ‘Tackt-isle Adventures’ prior to the event, to book and arrange payment for the water activity item you wish to use on the day. The S&CA are booked in for the 14:30-16:30hrs rental slot. You would need to state you are part of The Sailing & Cruising Association Rally. Each activity item will cost around £20.00. Because we will be a large group, The manager recommends booking early.
If weather permits, Marky’s mystery game of Roll ‘n’ Grab will be played against the clock on the nearby field. Overall, it will generally be a day of members acting daft and having a good time.
Come rain or shine, there will be an evening bbq within one of the designated harbour view marquees that the S&CA have secured.
There is no obligation to participate in the water sports element. If you prefer to merely enjoy a day of mingling and relaxation, that is absolutely tickadeeboo.
Those to arrive by land are as always very welcome.
