CANCELLED due to Coronavirus Pandemic
Keen to venture out of the Solent? Please register your interest in joining the Cross Channel Rally!
This year we will see the return of the cross channel rally, once a great S&CA tradition for the late May bank holiday. We're aiming to cross the channel from our home ports the Solent and Poole, bound for Cherbourg. Since this will require more planning that our regular South Coast Events, we are aiming to have a Skippers' call in late Feb or early March to discuss and hopefully agree a plan.
We plan to aim for Cherbourg since it's accessible at all states of tide and well lit if arriving in darnkess. Aside from that, plans are currently up for discussion... Options include:
- Exploring East of Cherbourg (e.g. St Vaast) or heading west to the Channel Islands.
- Taking extra days before or after the bank holiday weekend to allow a less hurried visit.
- Joining the event by ferry and hotel for those not wishing to venture outside The Solent on a small vessel
- Perhaps even meeting up with members of our French sister club the Voile et Croisière en Liberté (VCL).
We need Members who are interested in joining the voyage to register for the event indicating whether they are skipper or crew, vessel name if known, and whether they need help finding a skipper/crew (as always, please strike up a conversation on CrewMatch, at the monthly socials, or pick up the phone!)
