South Coast - Spring and Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday (Placeholder)

Registration

The Spring Bank Holiday has been moved, and now incorporates the Platinum Jubilee.  We are taking the opportunity of the extra long bank holiday period to have a more leisurely extended visit to Poole Harbour followed by a night at anchor in the Western Solent. 

THE PLAN

Details are still in development, look out for updates in the event as we move into the new year and firm up the itinerary.  As usual with this event as being further afield for most of us, the weather may influence our plans.

Thursday 2nd June

Make our way to Poole Harbour.  We hope to be able to make reservations at Poole Quay, but there will be alternative arrangements if necessary.

Pontoon drinks of Gin and Dubonnet in the evening with options of self catering on board or individual restaurant bookings.

Friday 3rd June

A 'Right Royal Picnic' on Brownsea Island,  and possibility of joining evening Jubilee celebrations in Poole.

We must all eat like Queens, so each crew will prepare a picnic dish from a selection of Her Majesty's favourites.  Each dish should comprise small individual portions, made from the finest ingredients, enough for each dish to serve about 80% of the attendees.  Our picnic lunch will be washed down with more Gin & Dubonnet and Champagne.

Dishes will be chosen on registration from:

Gleneagles Pate with Toast

Saturday 4th June

COVID NOTE

The Committee intends that club events will go ahead wherever possible in 2022, and the planned events are not intended to be cancelled unless they are clearly prohibited by government restrictions.

All events will be run as 'Cruise in Company'.  All participants must comply with and be individually responsible for relevant guidance or regulations such as socially distancing,  maximum group sizes and household mixing during any interaction of crew groups.

It will be the responsibility of individual skippers to comply with relevant guidance or regulations in respect of crewing arrangements and the safety of their crews.  This includes, but is not limited to - hygiene precautions, social distancing, group sizes and mixing of households on board.

Due to the uncertainty over Covid risks and restrictions at the time of the event, activities and catered dining arrangements (Plan A) are subject to change or cancellation.  Crews will need to be prepared for a Plan B of switching to an open air BBQ in individual crew groups or catering on board for example.

All attendees must be registered for the event for track and trace purposes.
