Solent Jubilee Rally - 25th May to 5th June
A bumper Solent event to commemorate both the MOA's 21st year as well as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee!
Up to a week and a half not only sailing around the Solent, but also taking in the Old Gaffers Festival in Yarmouth, the Needles Battery, historic Beaulieu, Sail the Wight, Portchester Castle, and Cunard's three Queens leaving Southampton together.
There is scope to join for part of the rally if you don't want to stay for the entire time.
Most of the event is the week before the Jubilee week. Hopefully this will avoid too many crowds, as the bank holiday week promises to be very busy.
Full details and timetable are in the PDF below (click the image to open it)
Please let us know if you are interested, and if so which dates you anticipate joining and leaving. Also let us know if you are considering taking part in Sail the Wight, in which case we will make sure you have all the information. You need to register before the end of April.
We must stress that we need to know the level of interest as soon as possible so that we can make more detailed berthing plans and bookings. This is a busy time of year and we can't afford to wait until the last minute.
