Marchwood is one of my favourite destinations, and we always get a warm welcome from the club officials.
'Two Boots' means bring your sailing boots and your walking boots, for a pre-dinner walk along the shoreline to Eling Tide Mill basin on Saturday.
Note that the berthing rates at Marchwood are very reasonable (2021 £15 per vessel), but there is no shore power on the pontoons.
Saturday 14th August
Meet at the Marchwood walk ashore pontoons at the top of Southampton Water by early to mid afternoon.
For those arriving in time, we will plan to take a walk along the waterside from around 2pm and returning by around 5. (This time we will turn right when the path forks!!)
We will be able to use the club bar facilities with a either a catered meal option or an Indian takeaway.
Sunday 15th August
Head for home ports.

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.
