Quite a few Solent Gaffers sailed to Bembridge on the Friday 11th and Saturday 12 August to join the planned rally. The weather was kind enough to give us a good sail there and home again. The relaxing weekend provided time for pontoon and boat chatting, walks on beaches and exploring the general area around Bembridge. The walk to the Lifeboat Station is always interesting.
On the Saturday evening we had a BBQ ashore and Liz Dodwell entertained us afterwards with her guitar and a few well known salty songs for us to join in. It was a very successful event.
Even the sail home was perfect weather for most of us.
Many thanks to the Solent Committee for organising this event.
