ECA Autumn Rally
As usual, the last rally of the year is to Chichester Marina, where most of us can stay in the sheltered waters of the Harbour rather than braving a sail to the Solent. For those of you based outside Chi harbour, I hope the weather is favourable, so you have a pleasant sail down the coast to join us.
With a lunch-time HW and associated free-flow through the lock, I expect most of us will arrive early afternoon so we can relax and maybe do a walk along the shore. My favourite is the walk to Dell Quay where we can have a drink in the village pub.
If you prefer to make the journey overland, you are also most welcome and there is plenty of parking at the Marina.
This year, we are combining the rally with the AGM. The AGM will be held in The Quarterdeck at Chichester Yacht Club at 1800hrs. This is also the room where we will be dining at 1930hrs. However, the AGM should finish by 1900hrs, which will give us time for a drink prior to dinner.
The AGM is being preceded by a Committee meeting, which I need to attend at 1700hrs. However, please feel free to join me from 1600hrs on Gemini for a drink and nibbles, before I have to dash off to the meeting.
I should receive the menu about 2 weeks before the rally, at which point I will circulate it so you can make your choices in advance.
Please let me know if you would like to attend the rally by using the booking form below. I look forward to seeing you there.
