Brilliant sunshine but no wind was the weather for the Lymington rally but everyone agreed it was preferable to wet and windy!
The rally was well attended with 13 boats participating; 8 alongside the Dan Bran pontoon, Lookin Foor Kloos alongside the Royal Lymington Yacht Club pontoon as host boat for the pontoon party, 3 other local boats (left on their moorings) and the Sams who arrived by car.
The pontoon party was attended by 28 crew in lovely evening sunshine before moving into the Royal Lymington Yacht Club.
As we had a private room, I twisted Andy and Sara Horwood’s arms to give a talk on their summer cruise to Northern Spain and back. It was very well received with some excellent pictures and included accounts of two crossings of the Bay of Biscay and what to do when your propeller falls off in Spanish waters! Many thanks to Sara and Andy for sharing their experiences.
Dinner followed with some excellent catering from the club.
On the Sunday, fine weather continued for the journeys home.
Boats participating were:
|Lookin Foor Kloos||Leda of Hamble||Aloni|
|Caribou||Out of the Blue||Zuma Blue|
I have reluctantly put my Maxi 1050 up for sale after owning her for 14 years!
Work has prevented me from using her enough as we are very busy now and I cannot justify keeping her.
The link to her advert is here:
The price is reduced today to £94,590.

As you will see, the rallies are currently ‘south-coast-centric’. If based away from the South Coast and happen to be passing at the time of a rally (with or without your Maxi) and would like to attend, please contact Steve Harridge on firstname.lastname@example.org . Should a group away from the South Coast (for example, on the East Coast) decide to have a rally of their own, please just let Steve know. Assistance can be given!
