ECA – Oct 2012 Chichester Rally details
13 – 14 October 2012
|Saturday 13th Oct||HW Chichester||10:21 (BST) 4.6m|
|Free flow @ CYB||09:02 (BST) 12:37|
As our glorious summer draws to a close and before we start thinking
of Christmas and log fires, this is our opportunity for a weekend on
the smooth waters of our beautiful Chichester Harbour!
As shown in these photos we took at last year’s October Rally, this is a particularly picturesque part of the harbour!
In addition, for those of us berthed in Chichester the only bar we need to negotiate is the one dispensing drinks in CYC.… We, on Witch Hazel, can also see how many RS200’s we can hook on the end of our 13′ bowsprit on our way through the dinghy racing fleets!
With mid-morning HW, we expect to berth at Chichester at around lunch time, giving us an opportunity for some exploration during the afternoon. We hope that some of you bold mariners will bring your boats so that we can enjoy a discounted rally rate at this “Premier” venue (excuse the pun…). If you prefer to make the journey overland, you are most welcome and there should be plenty of parking at the marina.
Please feel free to join us from 17:00 (5-ish) on our salty gaff cutter, Witch Hazel, for drinks and nibbles prior to dinner at the Chichester Yacht Club.
Hopefully, like previous years, the weather will be warm and dry enough to enjoy sundowners in our cockpit! If not we can enjoy Witch Hazel’s cosy oil lamp-lit cabin.
We have booked dinner at our usual venue, Chichester Yacht Club and the timings are:-
18:30 hrs (or thereabouts) Gather at CYC bar.
19:00 hrs Start meal (ordering from the blackboard, with that buzzy/flashing gizmo to inform us the meal is ready).
|Sunday 14th Oct||HW Chichester||11:01 (BST) 4.9m|
|Free flow @ CYB||09:43 (BST) 13:28|
IF YOU WISH TO JOIN US PLEASE LET US KNOW BY 5 OCTOBER, AS WE NEED TO CONFIRM NUMBERS WITH THE CYC.
Let us know if you wish to bring your boat to Chi Marina so that we can provide details to the Marina – many thanks!
