Monday 11th July
Fleet gathers at Island Harbour Marina upstream of Cowes on the River Marina (HW 0950/4.2m Springs -4). This is the first visit by the Club and requires entry via a lock. The lock will be on free flow (ie both gates open) for about HW-1 to +1. At other times entry is fairly simple but ensure you remain in the buoyed channel. Detailed instructions are on the website (island-harbour.co.uk). Boats 40ft and larger should contact the marina well in advance to discuss entry and berthing; any skipper unsure about entry should also contact the marina. (Phone:01983 539994). If unsure about berthing at the marina, berth at the Folly and either get the water taxi or walk to the marina (about 15 minutes).
Dinner at the Breeze Restaurant and individuals to pay on the night. Choice of 2 course (£21.95) or 3 course (£29.95) menu with a wide choice of dishes.
