Last chance to sign up to the 2015 Spring Excuse


This is your final chance to sign up to the Spring Excuse 2015- an event not to be missed!

Friday 24th
Gather on the Hamble for an informal dinner ashore at the Jolly Sailor, Old Bursledon. Berthing, if required, at Swanwick Marina.
Saturday 25th
Out to Southampton Water and the greater Solent for some fun on the water.
Following racing we will finish in the vicinity of Beaulieu River entrance and proceed up the river towards Gins Farm, the Royal Southampton YC’s fantastic base here. Various berthing options are available alongside or on a mooring but we hope most will join us on the [serviced] pontoon.
We then look forward to an enjoyable evening in their clubhouse and the surrounding tranquillity with its superb views along the river and out across to the Solent and beyond.
For those that wish to join us for the evening, but not by water, parking is available at the end of Gins Lane next to the Clubhouse.
The Young Member’s fleet of Model Yachts will also be present at Gins Farm for some fun on Saturday afternoon time permitting or Sunday morning.
Sunday 26th
A day at everyone’s leisure, whether that be exploring the river then joining us for a lunchtime gathering upstream at Bucklers Hard or perhaps visiting the Beaulieu Boat Jumble or alternatively just departing in your own time for a relaxing sail homeward.
