Hi all,

We had such a good weekend last year with about 14 boats attending, we are going to do pretty much the same again this year. For those that are joining the mid-week Poole rally this would be a great way to round off the week.

Friday 17th July HW Portsmouth 13.12 BST

Saturday 18th July HW Portsmouth 13.54 BST

Sunday 18th July HW Portsmouth 14.36 BST

Access is 2 hours +/- HW. Ryde is a drying harbour with the pontoons and boats sitting down on the soft mud. Rafting up will be the order of the day. Fixed keels can lean against the wall. Toilets and showers are available but can get busy. There is no electricity available on the pontoons, but you can get ice packs for your fridge from the harbour office. Bring a couple of empty plastic milk bottles

to exchange, there is no fee but a donation to the RNLI would be appreciated.


For boats arriving on Friday afternoon, we will pick somewhere to eat together at about 19:00 hrs, for those that wish to.


Daytime will be up to you. There is loads to do at Ryde, Bowling, Cinema, Swimming, Skate Park, Shopping, Long Coastal Walks or just messing about on the beach. There are also train and bus terminals that will take you anywhere on the Island. Hop on a train and you can be on the beach at Sandown in about half an hour.

17:30 hrs Pimms and nibbles on the pontoon hosted by Chris and Graham on Betty Blue.

19:00 hrs Evening meal at the Castle Hotel just across the esplanade. You pick your own menu when ordering, expect to pay about £8 - £12 for a main course.


09:00 to 11:00'ish - Bring your own breakfast BBQ on the sea wall overlooking the Solent (weather permitting).

After breakfast, Boules on the Beach competition and Sand Castle building Competition - so bring your buckets and spades and boules. Last departure will be about 16:00 hrs before all the water goes again.


Not essential, but would help the Harbour Master and us to arrange things, so please let us know.

See you there, Chris and Graham
