Bembridge Rally Report
17 &18th June
This was an innovation for the Solent Section of the MOA, a mid-week rally to coincide with midsummer, and the season certainly smiled on us with warmth, sunshine, good breezes and only five minutes of very light rain at 0700 on the 18th! Nine boats, (Morfran, Lookin for Kloos, Blue Lightning, Maxima, Fenix Flyer, Suive, Leda of Hamble, Neroli & Walk of Life. Eighteen owners and crew participants with many spending the afternoon walking in the delightful environment of the Duver and adjacent coast, before assembling for the "pontoon party" in the evening. This was hosted by Richard and Lorraine Sams on Suive who had organised the social events and Peter and Joan Lloyd on Walk of LIfe . Conversation and wine flowed as did a stream of wonderful canapes from Suive's galley. Suitably warmed up, we were taken by water taxi to the Brading Haven Yacht Club where we were given a very friendly welcome by a club member and then served an excellent dinner by Tara and her catering team. Ten o' clock saw us back on the water taxi, although a few chose to walk back in the last of the ebbing light. We hope that the obvious success of the event will confirm it as an annual one but with even more boats attending next year.
