Our first South Coast Event of the season is a short, possibly chilly hop to Bembridge for vessels based in Portsmouth Harbor, and tides work reasonably well for those coming from the West.

HW Portsmouth 13:45 Sat, 15:15 Sun

Berthing has been arranged at the friendly and popular Duver Marina.  We will gather on the pontoons on Saturday afternoon, followed by dinner at 7:30 at the Brading Sailing Club, who looked after us so well at the August Bank Holiday last year.

There will be a three course fixed price menu at the club plus drinks available at the bar.  Space will be reserved for return transfers on the water taxi.


Goat's cheese and truffle fondu

Haddock and prawn chowder


Island reared beef short-rib, stunning local ale and pancetta jus and mashed potatoes

Fillet of Seabass with herby diced potato, onion bhadji, curried broth, roasted lemon

Chef's 4 bean chilli, basmati and tortillas


Selection available on the night

Alternatively add £2 supplement for cheese board (per-order only)

Set menu price £25 per head

Participants will need to pay for the meal upon registration.  Drinks at the bar and after dinner tea and coffee will be available and paid for individually at the venue.

Land based participants are welcome to join us on-board on Saturday afternoon and for the evening meal.

The Brading Sailing Club will be providing us with a private space at the end of their dining room, and if anyone is willing to step forward to host entertainment, we could have another fun game of Bembridge Bingo!!


Crew seeking berths are initially advised to visit the club Facebook ‘Crew Match’ page. If you are unsuccessful or not in the Facebook group, you are welcome to contact the event host.

Land based participants are as always welcome to join, and may wish to take advantage of one of the local hotels or B&B's in the area.

1. Register your attendance via the S&CA website by Friday 20th March

2. Visit the Facebook CrewMatch page for all crewing opportunities

3. Upon approach, skippers will be required to contact the harbor / marina by VHF for specific berthing instructions. (please state you are part of the S&CA/Sailing&Cruising Association Rally)

4. You can bring along friends, but remember to ‘add guest’ at the point of your registration 

You host will be Andrew Palmer
