Members of Yacht Owners Associations are invited to a one-off race between members and their associations in the Solent on Saturday 9th May 2020.
This is intended to be a fun event to promote on-the-water competition and socialising between the participants and the Owners Associations.
Following the race, participants are invited to gather in Cowes Yacht Haven and attend a prize-giving dinner.
The event is organised by Chichester Cruiser Racing Club which has organised races for boats in the Chichester Harbour area for over 70 years.
Our thanks to our member presenters at the Winter Social which proved still more popular this year than last. Ross talked and showed a video about his Round The Island race where they did well to finish in such light airs; Richard and Pam talked through their escapade involving a lobster pot requiring a lifeboat off Cherbourg last summer; and Patrick and Amanda presented their cruise round Scotland, across the North Sea and down the coast of Norway. I think we all appreciated the presentations and range of topics.
We also talked through the CCRC programme for this 2020 focussing on some of the changes from the usual programme or innovations for this year. Then we all retired to the bar at Itchenor Sailing Club for some sociable drinks before the carvery roast dinner.
