Dear All
The committee have had quite a few enquiries about the dates and timings for the Cowes Torquay Rally at the end of August 2010
So here is a breakdown.
Wednesday 25th August: Boats assemble in Cowes for a 10.30 am start. 15 knots as far as Hurst so photographs can be taken.
All boats to meet up in Babbacombe Bay by 4.30 pm before being escorted in to Torquay.
Red Arrows display 6pm-6.30
1930 hrs for 2000 Reception at the Royal Torbay YC entry by ticket only for participants [a few still available at £30 per ticket]

10.30 boats cast off for Grand Parade and then a ‘mock start’ when everyone speeds off. Can then proceed at own pace to whatever direction they wish.

and for those of you who prefer to stay in the Solent for the CTC-50 event, the Skipper and Crew of "Maid of Baltimore" will accompany the fleet from Cowes to Hurst on Wednesday morning, returning to the Hamble in the Evening.

We will then be in and around Cowes from the Thursday evening, probably at Shepherd's Wharf.

We hope to meet the boats coming back from Torquay on the Friday afternoon at Hurst, and then return to Cowes with them.

If you see us out there, give us a wave, or call up on Channel 16 and come and join us.

Cheers,

Glad the Royal Corinthian BBQ has resolved the problem of what to do on Saturday night!

Just a quick repair to Wanda's brilliant Rally breakdown.

The ROYAL TORBAY welcome is £10 and Thursday Gala is £30
we have just heard that Lord Iliffe chairman of MDL Europes largest marina group will be attending the Gala evening as will several dignitries from Torbay Council.
you have 2 weeks before we have to close ticket sales and there are not that many remaining!

John
As far as I am aware the BBQ at the Royal Corinthian is at 2100 at the Royal Corinthian YC after the prize giving at the RYS on Sunday 29th August

That's what I put on my first post and just checked Felix's info pack and it is on the Sunday, we will have to think of something for the Saturday.

Cheers Wanda
