ECA Autumn Rally
This is our opportunity for a weekend on the smooth waters of our beautiful Chichester Harbour instead of the Solent chop and rolling Atlantic Waves!
So, on 26 Sep 2015, instead of making a bee-line for the West Pole, why not explore the eastern part of Chichester Harbour and enjoy the beautiful sights of East Head, follow the “Roman Transit” to Chalkdock, and onwards to Cobnor Point, Itchenor Reach and Chichester Lake? We think this is a particularly picturesque part of the harbour!
With a late morning HW, we expect to berth at Chichester Marina in the early afternoon giving us an opportunity for some exploration. We hope that some of you bold mariners will also be tempted to bring your boats, so that we can enjoy a discounted rally rate.
If you prefer to make the journey overland, you are also most welcome and there is plenty of nearby parking.
Please feel free to join us from 5.30-ish on Witch Hazel, for drinks prior to the meal at 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.
The timings are:
17:30 hrs (or so) drinks on Witch Hazel
19:00 hrs (or thereabouts) gather at CYC.
19:30 hrs Start meal.
You can order your food from the blackboard menu at CYC:
Here’s hoping for a good turn-out this year! We hope you are able to come along!
