The Yarmouth BBQ has been a popular regular fixture for many years. This year however the berthing availability was only very late in the season so fingers crossed for good weather! Land based participants are welcome to join the group anytime from Saturday afternoon.
Saturday 7th October
Crews will make their way to Yarmouth. Early evening drinks on the pontoons and intention is to head to our normal spot on the beach weather permitting.
Sunday 8th October
An early start for those capable of stirring for a walk along the beach.
Head for home ports. Most of us heading East will want a slightly late departure to catch the favourable tide.
HW Portsmouth 18:07 on Saturday and 07:20 & 19:43 Sunday
Advance payment for berthing is not required, but you must pay on arrival or prior to departure.
Call the Berthing Masters on VHF CH 68 on Approach. They will advise when you can enter the harbour subject to ferry movements and provide berthing instructions. Please state that you are with the S&CA Rally and ask to be berthed together with the group.
We will be rafted on the linear pontoon, but previous experiences at Yarmouth is that even for rallies they operate a degree of first come first served policy and have sometimes mingled us with other rallies or general visitors.
GETTING HELP TO JOIN US
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.
