Plans are being made for a 'Hollowell Race the Ferry' weekend at Poole Harbour. This area is probably one of the best small boat cruising areas in Britain. Lots to see and with great scenic views. Of course, early days yet and as in previous years no deposits required nor will we hold you to non-attendance. You arrange your own accommodation.
WHEN: Friday 9th Sept. Leave Sun evening 11th Sept. (or make you own arrangements).
LAUNCH BASE: Poole Yacht Club.Poole YC This club is very close to the town centre and has excellent facilites.
FEES: £18.50 per day includes car parking, boat storage, full use of facilites and club room with cafe/ restaurant.
MISC: No rescue cover - so be competant enough to look after yourself and your crew on the water.
ACCOMODATION: RNLI Within walking distance of the Poole YC. We will probably eat here on Saturday night. Premier Inn at Holes Bay (about 5 min drive).
I have already received a few 'expressions of interest' but as I now have a date - can I ask you to let me know (again) if you would like to attended. I will add you to this list:
1. Stewart/ Chris Elder (Nicky Frost crew)
Poole YC have an unconfirmed date for their diary by us and they have stated their own sailing programme might take prority. The agreement is that both parties will confirm their arrangements by mid-July. We will limit the 'invasion fleet' to 5 boats.
Whats it like to sail Poole? This is a GP14 cruise a few years back. (We are the boat in front at 1.33.) Shows the exit and entrance from Pool YC.
Poole YC from the air at 9.03
