Solent Section Gins Farm Meet

Details of our rally to the Gins Farm clubhouse of the Royal Southampton YC over the weekend 14-15 September together with the booking form, are now available in the attachment. This is a great way to begin winding down from your summer cruising, but don't forget Marchwood in October.

Date: weekend 14-15 September

This is usually the last summer meet of 2018, but please watch - they may be another up Southampton Water to Marchwood.

At Gins we will be there by courtesy of the Royal Southampton Yacht Club at Gins Farm on the Beaulieu River, one of the most attractive and least developed parts of the Solent.

Some boats will muster in Newtown Creek. If coming please let Alec know.
