Friday 18th April

We are booked into Shepards Wharf Marina in Cowes on the Friday night. With an early afternoon high tide this gives us a leisurely afternoon sail down the Solent from Chichester after which there will be the traditional drinks and nibbles on Ruahine at about 18:30. For the evening there are lots of choices in Cowes so we can see what people prefer at the time.

Saturday/Sunday 20th/21st April.

For Saturday and Sunday nights we are booked into Lymington Yacht Haven so this gives us a afternoon sail along the Western Solent. We hope to eat on the Saturday night at the Lymington Town Sailing club (to be confirmed)

On the Sunday there are lots of options in and around Lymington. There is an Easter fete in Lymington and also good walks to Keyhaven and the Gun Inn or even the option of a day sail if the weather is good.

Monday 22nd April.

Ruahine and some other boats, are planning to continue further West the following week, perhaps to Poole or Weymouth if the weather permits . If anyone wishes to join us please let us know. For those who have to return to their home base, a late afternoon high tide gives a good day sail back.
