I am canvassing members opinions on a possible change of venue for the Yarmouth Rally on 23rd to 25th August.
There has been a suggestion that rather than visiting Harold Hayles Pontoon in Yarmouth during the August Bank Holiday we go to Cowes with the option of visiting the IOW Steam Fair.
Information for the steam fair can be found at http://www.iwsteamrailway.co.uk/events/the-40th-island-steam-show.aspx.
Tides for the weekend are not ideal for the Yarmouth venue, HW Portsmouth being at 1220 BST on Monday meaning a very early start for EYH berth holders.
Enquiries have been made at Island Harbour and the Folly Inn for berthing should we decide to go to Cowes. Island Harbour is booked up for the weekend but the Folly has river pontoons available for booking.
We currently have five berths reserved at Harold Hayles for the Saturday and Sunday nights of the Bank Holiday weekend.
If you are considering joining the August Bank Holiday Rally could you please mail or text your preference to me as soon as possible so that the necessary arrangements can be made.
