Please confirm your attendance……

Plans are now in place for the 2018 Seaward Squadron Rally in Portland and Weymouth Harbours, Dorset.

The main events of the rally are based in Weymouth Harbour on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th, June. This year, an extra day has been added to allow, those that wish to do so, to rendezvous in the Portland Harbour marina. This will enable us to make the short passage to Weymouth Harbour on the Friday morning as a flotilla.

The format for the weekend is as follows:
Thursday 7th June -

The addition of the Thursday venue, is an optional extra day, to the normal format of the Seaward Rally. The Dean & Reddyhoff marina in Portland harbour is available at all states of the tide, so you are free to arrive at a time that suits your passage plan. Please let the Harbour Staff know that you are part of the Seaward Rally and you will be directed to the correct pontoon.

It is not planned to organise a meal, in Portland. Each crew are free to make their own arrangements. There is “The Boat That Rocks” restaurant on site or the “Cove Hose Inn” a short week away, overlooking Chesil Beach. You may wish to make reservations at your chosen venue.
Friday 8th June -
It is planned that the fleet will make the sort passage to Weymouth, in a group, departing 10:00. Detailed instructions will be giving, on the day, to manage our arrival in Weymouth and enable berthing in an orderly fashion.

An evening meal has been arranged at the Weymouth Sailing Club. The club is situated on the south bank of the harbour and has fine views.

The meal will be a hot buffet with several choices including a vegetarian option. There will be a Cash Bar where you can purchase drinks.
