… for the Max from your sailing!

Rallies 2001

Yarmouth 2001 27-28 Oct.

Two Maxi 1100’s, Jovi and Taranaki, met in Yarmouth for drinks and a  pub meal. Saturday was gloriously sunny with a F3 to 4 South westerly, making a pleasant sail to Yarmouth.


   Cherbourg 2001

Five boats attended in Cherbourg on the weekend of 23rd-25th June. Berthing fees were exceptional value £1.20/m (£13 for 11m) per night. We made the 11 1/4 hour crossing from Gosport over Friday night, 15-20Kts of easterly wind and clear skies. The journey back on Monday took 10 1/2 hours in 15 Kts of Easterly.

As arranged, we congregated on Saturday night for Aperitifs followed by Dinner in the Yacht Club. Dinner  was excellent value, especially the large ice-cream Profiteroles.

Many thanks to Hugh Rowan for organising the event.



   Chichester / Cowes  2001

Nine boats attended for a night out at the theatre to see Tom Stoppard’s play “On the Razzle”, a very enjoyable Saturday evening. Sunday saw a move for some to Cowes Yacht Haven, evening drinks aboard Caorann and a brief AGM.
