October Folly Rally Weekend.
October Folly Rally Weekend.

Typically, the annual late Cruiser supper marks the official close of the season when we Cruisers reminisce about the good times we have had through the year in the 25 or so events that the Cr/Committee have put on. Friday 14th October was no different.
A healthy compliment of members sat down to a great supper of tasty Gammon in sauce (Chairman's favourite - thanks Maggie) followed by Summer Fruit Tart - another popular choice. Most of us decided to team this appropriately with what was not quite the last of the summer wine, whilst viewing the member's action photos on the large TV screen.

Lymington - Horse & Jockey Rallies
Lymington - Horse & Jockey Rallies

With equal numbers of sail and power boats this could be described as a hybrid rally, with five of each! A great two days, with a pleasant beat to Lymington for those with sails, and a calm ride for the motor-boaters.
We moored on the Dan Bran pontoon, just downstream from the Royal Lymington Y.C., an excellent viewpoint for watching activity on the river - ferries, dinghy sailing, all the usual sailing and motor boat traffic, and a few paddle boarders too. Perhaps we should be thinking of paddle board rallies?

Awayday on the Basingstoke Canal
Awayday on the Basingstoke Canal

Hamble Square, 0845 for 0900 start. Spot the picnic bags in the sunshine. Coliseum Coaches, Dean at the wheel. 0910 and we were off after the usual "hands up anyone who isn't here" from one of the Committee Members. Safe hands, then.
Dean deposited us soon after 1000 at Colt Hill Wharf in Odiham where our numbers were swelled by a dozen own-steam crew-members. We were 50 mixed Mercury Gardens Residents and R Srn YC Members, some falling into both camps for a cruise on John Pinkerton II on the Basingstoke Canal.

Mid week rally to Newtown Creek
Mid week rally to Newtown Creek

When the Cruising Committee plan the mid week rallies we usually say 'we hope to have a BBQ on a lovely evening at Newtown' with our fingers crossed. This year the finger crossing worked!

Cruiser Race 2016
Cruiser Race 2016
With all 10 boats assembled in Yarmouth, we made our way to The Royal Solent Yacht Club for the briefing and supper.
The start the next morning on Saturday 16 July was at 0830 by Black Rock. The CRO, Graham Nixon on Magic was on his own but using the VHF & a hooter did a good job starting us on time. The wind was from the south west about 12 knots with sunshine. It was a fast passage to the Needles with a strong ebb tide.

Sailability July 2016
Sailability July 2016
The forecast was for breeze at 12-17kts; we had upwards of 25kts. Undaunted, 35 guests on 5 club boats and Wetwheels set off from the club. The sun shone on us and everyone had a great day on the water. There was a trip up Southampton water with a more sheltered run up to Burseldon and a dash across the Solent to East Cowes or the Folly. The team on Wetwheels even managed a run ashore in...

Bembridge Rally Report
Bembridge Rally Report
Report & Images: Pat North
It's true; the sun does shine in Bembridge After two years of poor weather we were treated to the best of the summer. Eight yachts and 4 motorboats made their way to the splendid Bembridge Harbour. It was a real vacation and we enjoyed an evening pontoon party in shorts and T shirts after which some ate on the boat and others ventured to a restaurant in St Helen's. The walk back from t...

Ladies Afloat 25th May 2016
Ladies Afloat 25th May 2016
10 ladies in 2 yachts, a gentle northerly, spent a happy time sailing to and lunching in Wootton Creek. We rafted together on the pontoon and transferred crews, good food and wine to one boat and did what the ladies do best. Have fun! The time rushed by and we had to make a fast passage under engine back to the Hamble just in time to catch the very last launch to the RSrnYC. Report &...

Mid week rally to Beaulieu
Mid week rally to Beaulieu

"Early sun on Beaulieu water lights the underside of oaks"

It wasn't quite like John Betjeman's poem 'Youth and Age on Beaulieu River' when the hardy bunch of mid week ralliers sailed round to Bucklers Hard.  In spite of the weather 12 boats went to Bucklers Hard bringing around 30 people to a very lively pontoon party.
