ECA February Freezer Rally 27 to 28 February 2016

Portsmouth HW Sat 27/02/16 01.10 4.6m 13.52 4.4m
HW Sun 28/02/16 02.13 4.4m 14.24 4.3m

As Officer of the Day I am looking for early informal expressions of participation for this Winter Rally, subject to actual wind and tide on the day, of course.
A formal Rally booking form will be posted on the website in mid February

Currently some berthing and 10 covers at an Italian Restaurant have already been booked by the ECA at Port Solent for the Saturday night. Obviously we do not wish to come up short on our bookings, other than by stress of weather on the day.

As a guide to possible participants;
From EYH, Tringa II usually takes an hour motor sailing down to the Bar, an hour/hour and a half to the Submarine Barrier according to the wind, 30-40 minutes motor sailing to Haslar Marina just inside Portsmouth (according to strength of ebb/traffic in the channel), and another 45minutes motor sailing up to Port Solent lock.

Say approximately 3hrs 15min to 4hrs or so to the lock in total according to wind, tide and engine/hull speed.

If you are interested in taking part in this Rally, I’d be grateful for an expression of interest and possible crew numbers via the the form below.

If you are interested in taking part but would prefer a nearer destination than this to suit your boat speed/ Crew’s cold and wet tolerance/ home berth’s tidal window, please also state your preference via the form below:

To register an interest in this event please complete the details below and press Submit.
