    POSTPONED due to Coronavirus Pandemic 

    Update (June 2020): We had planned to sail in a flotilla of at least 4 charter boats joined by several Club Members who keep their boats on the Clyde.  Alas, it is unlikely that lockdown will be sufficiently eased to make the flotilla viable so we've postponed to the week beginning the 24th July 2021. If you're keen to join the flotilla next year (either as a skipper or as crew, if berths become available), please get in touch. 

    With a growing number of members and boats in Scotland, we're planning to hold a Club flotilla exploring the Firth Clyde for our Ruby Jubilee year. It's a spectacular sailing area with some useful introductions from Sail Scotland and Largs Yacht Haven. Several skippers with local knowledge have proposed a rough itinerary:

    Largs > Rothesay > Tighnabruaich > Tarbert > Campbeltown > Lamlash > Largs

    If you're already planning to join the flotilla, or interested in potentially joining the flotilla, please sign up to this event.  Registration means that we'll include you in all communications regarding the flotilla plans and also, if you mark yourself down as crew looking for a berth or skipper looking for crew, then we'll do what we can to try and match you up with a skipper with space on their boat. 

    Charter Base: Largs Yacht Haven (easily accessible by road, rail and air)

    Dates:   Saturday 24th - Saturday 31st July 2021

    Charter Options: We are discussion with local charter firms, currently several 37 to 45 ft boats are available and cost between £2000 and £3000 for the week.

    Feel free to info@gaysailing.org.uk if you want any more detailed information at this stage. It goes without saying that the sooner we can firm up on numbers and secure reservations with the charter company, the better.

    Registration is closed

    Please see Covid Note Below 

    An extra late entry event in compensation for the loss of Easter, and to fill up the calendar post what we hope will be the easing of most restrictions in July.  Not exactly an epic voyage for the many members based in the area, but perhaps an opportunity for new members or novice sailors to sample a weekend on the water in the shelter of Portsmouth Harbour.


    =======================================

    THE PLAN

    Saturday 31st July

    Home ports to Port Solent.  We are expecting that most vessels can be berthed together on the linear E pontoon where we will meet in the early evening for drinks onboard and on the pontoon.

    Individual crews can take advantage of the numerous restaurants around the marina, and there is a possibility, nearer the time, that we will be able to make a group booking at one of the venues.

    Sunday 1st August

    Head for home ports

    BERTHING ARRANGEMENTS FOR SKIPPERS

    A rally booking form will need to be submitted by the organizer 2 weeks prior to the event.  The booking form requires various details which will be required in the skippers' registration fields.  Unless advised to the contrary berthing payment is not required in advance on this occasion.

    HW Portsmouth 17:44 Saturday and 18:28 Sunday

    • Marchwood Yacht Club
    Register

    Please see Covid Note Below 

    Marchwood Yacht Club were great hosts for the Final Fling in 2019, so we will be calling in to see them again with the use of their club room, bar and facilities.

    'Two Boots' means bring your sailing boots and your walking boots, for a short pre-dinner walk along the shoreline to Eling on Saturday.

    Note that the berthing rates at Marchwood are very reasonable (£15 per vessel), but there is no shore power on the pontoons.  Those needing all the comforts of home will need to bring their own electricity!

    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 3pm and returning by around 5.

    The current expectation is that we will be able to use the club bar facilities with a self catered fish and chip supper (approx. cost £12pp).   If the club can confirm availability of catering in advance of the event then we will switch to using their in house arrangements which was £22 per head in 2020.  Payment will be collected separately from registration once arrangements are confirmed.

    Sunday 15th August

    Head for home ports.  Fingers crossed for calmer conditions this year!

    Information for Skippers

    On this occasion there will be no need to book and pre-pay your own berth, MYC have taken a group booking and we will each pay before departure.

    There is no need to call the berthing master by VHF, visitors berths are labelled.  Smaller and shallow draft vessels please use the inner berthing spaces.

    • Poole Harbor and Studland Bay
    Register

    Please See Covid Note Below 

    Reviving what used to be a regular club destination, the plan is to gather at anchor in Studland Bay, and / or Poole Harbour for the Saturday night and move into the Port of Poole Marina for Sunday night.




    Image result for image of studland bay

    THE PLAN

    Saturday 28th August - Sail to Poole (Studland Bay)  / arrive late afternoon at anchor / Evening beach BBQ on South Beach.

    Sunday 29th August - options of a lazy day on (nudist!) beach / Beach volleyball (weather permitting) or quick sail  to Swanage and back / Walk to Old Harry’s.

    We have reserved space for 10 vessels at the Pool Quay Boat Haven and Port of Poole Marina for Sunday night.

    Evening arrangements TBC.

    Monday 30th August - Return to Home ports, an early start for those returning to the Eastern end of The Solent.


    In the event of adverse weather (Easterlies) making Studland unsuitable for anchoring we will move into Poole Harbour and anchor around the back of Brownsea Island. 

    The other potential challenge is whether a voluntary exclusion zone for anchoring in Studland comes into place by August, which would also indicate moving the anchorage into the harbour.

    A return visit to the popular Folly Inn on the River Medina.  Being later in the season they are able to accommodate our large group. 

    The Folly Inn is pretty much packed every Saturday through the season with Isle of Wight locals and visiting yacht crews.  Their novelty attraction is a lively disco after dinner always featuring dancing on the tables (assuming that the HSE police have still not yet found the IOW).

    Note there is no shore power or water on the Folly mid river pontoons.  Those needing all the comforts of home will need to bring their own electricity!

    Saturday 2nd October

    Meet at the Folly pontoons in the afternoon.

    Skippers must call the Folly Berthing Master on VHF Chanel 72 on approach for berthing instructions.

    There are 9 spaces reserved on the walk ashore pontoon (so that's Andromeda, then first come, first served!)  Also it's max 12m on the walk ashore.  Remaining vessels, and those over 12m will be on the mid-river pontoons, which have a water taxi available during the pub opening hours.

    Drinks on board at the walk ashore pontoon followed by dinner and dancing at the Folly (dancing is not actually compulsory).

    Following the success of the LUS 2019 at the Royal Naval Club and Royal Albert Yacht Club in Portsmouth, it is also the venue for the 2021 South Coast EoS Dinner.  Since so many members are berthed in Portsmouth Harbour, we will have a  race in the Solent to make sure that everyone gets out on the water.



    TBC - Haslar marina have generously offered free berthing for the Saturday night for up to three boats berthed at Premiere next door (first come first served max 40' - there may still be a small charge for electricity).  Haslar residents will also be able to move to the rally pontoon outside the lightship subject to dredging works.

    This event will be ideal for new and novice sailors to join Portsmouth based skippers for the day sail.  Also for land based participants who may be able to find berths on board for the Saturday night.

    HW Portsmouth 18:05 Friday and 07:06 on Saturday

    THE PLAN

    Friday 29th October

    We have reserved four visitors berths at Haslar for members wanting to join on the Friday night.  Please contact the organizer upon registration if you want to use one of these spaces.

    Saturday 30th October

    Home ports to Dean & Reddyhoff's Gosport Haslar Marina or day-sail at 10am from Portsmouth Harbour.

    Gathering at Haslar by late afternoon we will have drinks onboard before taking the ferry to Portsmouth together and walking to the yacht club.

    Despite the apparent anomalies of sail and power participants, and completely different courses,  a state of the art, and flawlessly fair, S&CA handicap system has been developed to calculate the race winners and losers!

    Whether making their way to Portsmouth Harbour from home ports, or participating in the day sail, skippers will record various details about their passage.  Race competition entries will be judged and prizes awarded at the evening dinner.

    The evening dinner at the Royal Naval Club and Royal Albert Yacht Club is £30 for a three course set menu, payable on registration.
