After a poor summer of weather this year, M-O-A were blessed with excellent weather for the end of season rally in Lymington.
A total of 10 Maxi rafted up on the Dan Bran pontoon (a new harbour masters pontoon with shore access) and a further 2 were represented – Topsey with her home mooring in the river and Reflection from Salcombe with Richard and Rosemary Gatehouse dropping in on the evening meet having been up to the boat show. So, a grand total of 12 boats and 31 crew, a great turnout!
Drinks and nibbles were on the pontoon (courtesy of M-O-A) on a wonderfully sunny and still September evening followed by dinner at the Mayflower – a stagger of all of 100 yards from the pontoon entrance.
Sunday the weather turned and although dry, a brisk south westerly wind had kicked in, good to blow the Solent boats back but a bit more of a challenge to those from Poole.
Boats represented were:-
|Maxi 1000’s… Blue Rider, Good Time Girl, Pace, Lookin Foor Kloos, Leda of Hamble, Saphire, Reflection|
|Maxi 34’s… Eye of Horus, Topsey|
|Maxi 1050’s… Max, Bilton Garth|
|Maxi 1100… Out of the Blue|
Many thanks to all those who came and made our Lymington event into yet another success.
