Hi Folks,

Ken here on behalf of Sue-The-Organiser (not in the litigation sense). The weather outlook is looking positive for the Bembridge Rally and gin distillery and restaurant are ready to receive us.

The restaurant is keen to know numbers so do please sign up swiftly if you have not done so already as this will help our planning.

Many thanks,


pp Sue

Update :

Thanks for all your details of berthing, food and gin. All communicated to relevant people.

On Sunday evening, to make it easier for everyone, the BBQ will be on beach behind the marina. That means no one needs to bring a dinghy.

Look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday
