Royal Southern Hosting 2020 ICOYC Cruise: Cruise of England's Southern Coast

Oct 17, 2019

The Royal Southern Yacht Club is pleased to host the 2020 edition of the ICOYC Cruise of England's Southern Coast.

Welcome Message:

In September 2020, we offer all ICOYC members a warm welcome back to the Solent – the backyard of Lord Nelson, where many of his fighting ships were built. The Royal Southern YC is delighted to have been asked to organise the 11th ICOYC cruise, which will take in all the major historical sites of the region as well as some outstanding cruising in the protected waters between England and the Isle of Wight. During the cruise, you will be visiting many of the Solent harbours and rivers including, Lymington, Poole, Yarmouth, Beaulieu, Cowes and Portsmouth. In Lymington we will be having drinks at the Royal Lymington Yacht Club which has have recently joined the ICOYC and then in Poole we will be having supper at the Royal Motor Yacht Club which has also just joined the ICOYC.
The opening and closing dinners will be held in our own clubhouse on the river Hamble, with all participating yachts berthed in our adjacent yacht haven. Marina berths at all the locations visited will be pre-booked by the organising committee and the programme will leave sufficient free time to allow you to indulge in your favourite pursuits ashore.
We are looking forward to welcoming ICOYC friends to our home waters, providing us the opportunity to return the generous hospitality we have enjoyed in all the previous cruises around the world.
Graham Nixon, Commodore
