ChiRaid trip on Oyster Boat Terror
Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May 2016
We are offering a great opportunity to take a trip on the last of JD Foster’s Oyster Fleet Terror, at the generously discounted price of £20.00 per person per day. Built in 1890 and renovated by Chichester boatbuilder Tim Gilmore, she represents the best of the harbour from her stem to her stern! Instead of carrying oysters around the harbour she will be carrying people, possibly you!
She plans to take part in the Raid in the following manner, but please bear in mind she is primarily a sailing boat and her operations are subject to weather conditions.
Saturday 21 May 2016
If joining at Emsworth: The Skipper plans to meet you at 9:00am in the Deck cafe at Emsworth Yacht Harbour (EYH), PO10 8BP and he will take Terror out of EYH as soon as there is sufficient rise of tide over the marina cill.
If joining at Itchenor: Terror’s first port of call will be at Itchenor Jetty (near the Chichester Harbour Conservancy Office – The Street, Itchenor, Chichester PO20 7AW), mid/late morning (we will let you know the time) to pick up or set down passengers as necessary, to join the Raid fleet on Chichester Harbour.
Terror will return to Itchenor Jetty at approximately 4:00pm.
Sunday 22 May 2016
In the morning Terror will depart from Itchenor Jetty (we will let you know the time) to join the Raid fleet on Chichester Harbour.
In the early afternoon Terror will call in at Itchenor Jetty (we will let you know the time) to pick up or set down passengers.
As soon as she has done that, Terror will be homeward bound to Emsworth Yacht Harbour (EYH), to arrive while there is still sufficient rise of tide over the marina cill.
What to bring:
Please wear warm and waterproof clothing and soft deck shoes or trainers. Terror’s crew will issue you with a lifejacket and this must be worn.
As this sailing may make you hungry, you also have the option of booking for the ChiRaid Supper and Social Event at Itchenor Sailing Club on Saturday Evening.
