Hi all,

The Ryde Rally for 2017 will be a repeat of last year but this time with out the rain! We had timed it to be able to watch the Mardi-Graz festival and parade on Saturday but despite there web page saying it is on the last day of June every year, this year it has been moved to 1st July, so we will not be able to see the parade.


Friday 23rd June HW Portsmouth 11.16 BST

Saturday 24th June HW Portsmouth 12.07 BST

Sunday 25th June HW Portsmouth 12.58 BST

For anyone that has not been before, Ryde is a drying harbour with the boats sitting on the sand/mud and the pontoons go down with the boats, so you have access to your boat all the time. Access into the harbour is about two hours either side of high water. Ryde high water is about 10 minutes before Portsmouth.

Pims and nibbles will be served from Betty Blue at about 17.00 hrs.

We will endeavor to organise a meal out on the Saturday evening as last year, but we are unable to make firm bookings because we are so weather dependent. Also because of the busy weekend we may not be able to get a group booking at short notice. However there are many good eating places within 10 minutes walk.

If the weather is kind we will be having a breakfast BBQ on the sea wall on Sunday Morning from about 09.00 hrs, followed by a Boules competition on the beech at about 11.00 hrs

Please let me know if you are planning to attend even if you cancel at last minute due to weather. It just helps us organise things.

Looking forward to seeing you all,
