Friday 8th May
Home ports to Dean & Reddyhoff's East Cowes Marina, where we have reserved berths for 15 boats and the BBQ area for our private use. There is a 10% rally discount on berthing fees, but skippers will be required to pay for their berthing a week in advance.

East Cowes to Buckler's Hard where we have berthing reserved in the newly extended marina. All registrants will need to bring a present (value approximately £5) giftwrapped for a game of the popular 'Roll and Grab'.
We have the BBQ area reserved for the evening.
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.
