Sun and fun on the Isle of Wight

Nine boats with 26 members and friends travelled to Island Harbour on the Isle of Wight for the annual July Rally. The weather and sea conditions were kind- well, most of the time!

On Friday evening we all gathered on the green for a "welccome" drinks reception. 

Saturday afternoon, with the sun still shining, the BBQ was lit and we enjoyed a peaceful few hours together.

On Sunday morning we were joined by members of the Island Harbour Yacht club for the "fun sports event" Games were arranged ladies v men and we did a Round Robin of these: Throwing the horseshoe; Boules; Lassoing the mooring pin; Wellie throwing and Bat and Ball skills. Scores were reported to the umpire, Frank Hawkins who kept a careful eye on the proceedings. The ladies team emerged triumphant and were awarded the challenge cup. The mens' team received a smaller version as a reminder of their weaker skills! Some Individuals were also given prizes for their prowess in various games.

On Sunday evening we gathered in the Breeze restaurant for an end-of rally meal. To see more pictures go to Facebook and click on photos then album.
