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.
