Make a date in your diary to sail up the River Crouch past the flesh pots of Burnham to North Fambridge then moor up on the pontoon outside the NF yacht club.

Our event coincides with the River Festival at North Fambridge again this year so special guests will include the 1962 Thames Lighterage Tug Touchstone from Kent (read about her here) and the 1945 Clyde Puffer Vic 96 (read about her here). We also hope to have OGA members The Cirdan Trust in attendance with the beautiful yacht Duet and also the barge Ironsides.

Saturday night

Spend the evening in the cosy surroundings of North Fambridge YC clubhouse with supper provided by ace gaffer chef Elaine.

Sunday morning

Our chef is on duty cooking breakfast before the start of the race which don't forget counts towards the East Coast Points Series. The trophies you will be competing for are the Ind Coope, Allsopp Cup, Skua Trophy and the Teal Tankard. All donated by people who helped to get the first Crouch Rally off the ground.

Sunday evening

There is a BBQ: bring your own meats, but salads and desserts provided. Followed by the prize-giving. Beer and wine on tap of course, musical instruments always welcome.

Monday morning breakfast again and then home
