Welcome to the ECA Rally to Porchester Sailing Club, located just beside Porchester Castle, so ideal for a visit. The club are opening the bar and restaurant for us.
Porchester Sailing Club have a new pontoon which does not dry and can take 4 or so boats. They also have a drying pontoon (access 2h each side of HW), and mooring buoys. If you have a dinghy it would be worth bringing as it may be necessary to get to shore.
Given the tides, leave Emsworth on Saturday at around 09:50, or as soon as tide permits, with the aim to get to Porchester by 12:50, 1.5 hours after HW Portsmouth. This will leave the afternoon to explore the castle and local environs.
As Porchester are opening the bar we will forego the usual drinks and nibbles and convene there for pre-dinner drinks at 18:00. For 19.00 Dinner.
On Sunday leave Porchester at around 10:30, aiming to get into Emsworth around 13:30, an hour or so after HW Emsworth.
If you are intending to come please complete and submit the form below as soon as possible.
Look forward to seeing you there.
