This year, our visit to Marchwood will also include our South Coast End of Season Dinner, with participation by land encouraged. There is still the Bembridge event to come, but there is no venue for catering so the EoS will be a little premature!
Note that the berthing rates at Marchwood are very reasonable (£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 for an Indian takeaway buffet at £20 per head payable on registration.
Unfortunately the catered three course meal is not available on this weekend, but the takeaway worked very well last year!
Sunday 15th August
Head for home ports.
