Nab Tower Race and Rally to Haslar Marina – 14th April 2018
Please note the Location has changed to Haslar from Chichester due to Tide Timing
HW Portsmouth 1130hrs 4.3m
Due to the early HW I have made a refreshing change to the venue of our spring rally, as it is unlikely the yachts that are racing will be able to get into the Chichester Marina with the early high tide and meeting the ebb at the harbour entrance.
Please come along and enjoy a visit/race to the Nab Tower, alternately a visit to the Submarine museum just by the marina or some retail therapy at Gunwharf Quay, just a short ferry trip from Haslar.
Race Starts 0900hrs
For those not racing, arrive at Haslar during the day at your leisure and call marina on arrival on Channel 80 to be advised on berthing.
Pontoon Drinks party 1800
Supper at Hardy’s 1930hrs
The plan is to start the race at 0900hrs and full details can be found Here
Supper is booked at Hardy’s Restaurant with menu choices detailed on the Event Booking Form.

The idea is that people will simply turn up at a particular location and be responsible for making their own anchoring or berthing and dining arrangements. The whole idea is based on informality and spontaneity.
If you spot an opportunity to propose an Informal Meet, why not take a chance and send a message via the Solent Branch Discussion Board. Alternatively, if you are already afloat you could try using your VHF radio or its DSC function to broiadcast a message.
The Solent Branch uses VHF Channel 77 and has adopted a group call sign of Compass. Our group DSC MMSI number is 023200031.
If you do enjoy a successful meet please send a short report with photos (if you have any) to our team of website updaters to help encourage other Branch members to participate.
