We will aim to sail round to Portsmouth, with a view to reaching Port Solent Marina and a warm pub and eatery.
If cold too harsh, or too windy for short handed crews to lock in or out safely to Port Solent, somewhere less far up Harbour/easy access.
We will divert to an agreed Chichester Harbour venue if the Bar is unsafe but the weather is otherwise ok and wind under F6.
If the weather is really dire, but we are at our boats, then it’s a pub and meal in Emsworth!
In view of the weather/small numbers at our winter rallies(can’t think why?) we will not be early booking into venues, so please register your interest on the e-form below, so we can all keep in touch and advise changes of/ the venues of numbers on the day.
