EVENTS for 2021

6th June 2021: Sea View, IoW: Annual Match against The Bar Y.C.

We try to sail against the Bar Yacht Club every year and we hope that this will take place, Covid-19 permitting, on 6th June at Sea View YC in Mermaids, providing Sea View YC are able to hold it given the COVID-19 Regulations that will still apply on that date.

Sailing against the Bar, the House of Commons and Lloyds of London at Sea View Yacht Club in the Mermaids in June 2021. Sea View Yacht Club, Esplanade, Seaview, Isle of Wight, PO34 5HB.

This is a great day's racing in the historic Sea View Mermaids in good company. It is three boat team racing and the boats each need 3 crew although they can be sailed by 2 at a push. So that is 9 places plus a couple of reserves in case anyone needs to drop out.

From the AGM on 10th February 2021 we have the following members wishing to take part:

Helms: Jaimie, Michael, Amber & Frank
Crews: Finbarr, Antony, Richmond, Hannah, Diana, Paul & Susan
Please advise if you wish to take part, we will only allocate places when we know the event is definite and have asked everyone for a definite commitment.

3rd July 2021: Round the Island Race

Diana has proposed that we sail a Swan 44 taking up to 12 crew, with her owner as one helm, if suitable arrangements can be made with the owner. We currently have the following members wishing to take part:

Helms: Jaimie, Frank, Nick
Crews: Diana, Finbarr, Richmond, Paul, Susan, Hannah & Elizabeth
Please advise if you wish to take part, we will only allocate places when we know the boat is definite is and have asked everyone for a firm commitment.

A cruise down the Cornish Coast to the Scillies

We have a Bavaria 36 from Liberty Yachts in Plymouth pencilled in - and we need to confirm by Monday 8th March 10.00am.
