20 May 2016 - 22 May 2016 – Cowes Regatta – More Info >
The highlight of the Club’s Programme of Events is the inter-Livery Cowes Regatta, traditionally held the weekend before the final Bank Holiday weekend of May. The format is for members and crews to meet informally at one of the local Club houses for a buffet supper on the Friday evening; the race commences on the Saturday morning after a dockside briefing followed by a Presentation Dinner at the Royal Yacht Squadron on the Saturday evening. A spectator boat is usually arranged for the non-sailors to view the activities on the Solent. This weekend is huge fun and immensely popular so booking early is encouraged.
16 Jun 2016 - 19 Jun 2016 – Rally Weekend – cross Channel to St Vaast – More Info >
This year we are introducing a Cross-Channel rally from the Solent to St Vaast. This is likely to take three to four days to achieve the full benefits and pleasure: one day to sail there and one day to return with one to two days in St Vaast.
It is currently proposed that the cross-Channel rally will begin on Thursday, 16th June allowing for Friday and Saturday in St Vaast and departure on Sunday for those who need to return to work on Monday or staying on for those who would like to do so and return at their leisure.
Full passage details for the crossing, together with activities and restaurants for the Saturday market, (fresh Normandy produce for lunch to eat on board), Gosselin’s “epicerie fine comestibles” (a mini Fortnum and Mason food and wine caves), a visit to Barfleur by bus for moules et frites, will be circulated in good time.
