The most fantastic weekend. Friday afternoon we will sail down to Yarmouth mooring alongside at about 1800, Saturday morning will be the Old Gaffers race, Saturday evening is the prize Sunday about midday we will set of back to Portsmouth – a great weekend and with the summer bank holiday to follow.
9th – 12th June 2016 Isle of Wight Festival
This will be a great weekend. On the Sat flood tide we will be able to run up the Ryde beach like a real pirate ship. Alice will berth for the night on the inner breakwater of Ryde harbour. Just minutes walk down the beach from the festival. A really great time for a group who know how to enjoy a pirate festival.
Watch the finish of this amazing event from a grandstand position afloat; we will probably spend Friday night in Gun Wharf and set off first thing to Cowes. When we arrive we are likely to see the first boats returning for the finish at about 1000 The evening can be spent ashore enjoying the after race conversations in the pubs and sailing clubs. On Sunday late morning we will sail gently back to Gun Wharf arriving midday. This is a One and a half day charter and will be great fun, an event not to miss. Just call and agree the schedule you can enjoy at a price to suit your pocket
Visit this event from Portsmouth harbour – berth in Southampton attend the festival sleeping aboard Alice overnight and then cruising back to Gunwharf in Portsmouth on Sunday – a really great weekend with all the crew in Retro.
This will be fantastic, watch, from the deck of Alice, all the classic boats racing in the Solent. Take part in the evening events and explore and board all the classic yachts moored for the week in Cowes. Just call – perhaps just a day would suit you, maybe the whole week. We will be sailing the Solent each day anyway so the Thames sailing barge experience could be awaiting you.
This race of the 45’s will be very exciting. Alice will be out near one of the turning marks giving you the best possible close up view of the racing tactics. Just look at the America’s cup website
We still have some days available for this week including the Friday night fireworks. You can book the week or just a day for this fantastic event. We will moor in Cowes ¬ all the racing can be seen as the yachts sail right past us. We have our own rib for transporting you to and from the shore. There are so many options: just call us and we can arrange just a day or the whole of Cowes week.
Alice can moor in heart of Hythe – it’s a short walk to the marina from where the raft racing is organised. Why don’t we build a raft and participate as a team?
A really great weekend, children swimming, fireworks, and races everything that one imagined as perfection say 40 years ago. Not to be missed – we were part of the scenery in 2012 this year we will be playing and racing in the Old Gaffers race.
This is a re run of the classics Cowes Torquay race but with new boats It will be just great to be moored in Cowes for the weekend and see hands on all those magic craft.
