"Seal flags about, all Orange and Black
Hoorah 2021 rallies may be back?
Lockdown being lifted, oh how we are gifted,

Bank holidays weekend are open, we "Seals" are a hoping.”

East Head Beach Chichester Harbour..

HW 1400hrs approx

pls aim to "run up" the beach aprox 1600hrs as the tide will be falling quiet quickly at the point, have 2/3 of your keel up and rudder free to kick up.

As part of the road map out of covid The Gov has stated from the 17th May we may meet up in groups of no more than 30 persons following social distancing rules.Eadt head is the perfect meet for the first rally in over a year,

Bring your own--- everything and no sharing, sorry no pimms party just yet.

I would ask you all to let me know if you are planning to join up, I will have to close the bookings when we reach the magic number 30 !

Please book early so as not to be dissappointed.

The PSSA is the class association for Parker and Seal lift keel yachts and other types of shallow draft yachts.

As an active, friendly club with almost 350 members, it organises rallies, social events and an annual race around the Isle of Wight.

Seals and Parkers are British-built yachts, ranging in length from 21' to 33', mostly with lifting keels. They started with the Seal 22 in 1970, built by John Baker, and followed by the Seal 28 and Super Seal 26. In 1981, Bill Parker took over the range and added the Parker 21, Parker 27 and Parker 31. These then evolved into a high-quality range of cruiser-racers built by Parker Lift-Keel Yachts - the trailable Parker 235, the Parker 285 and the Parker 335. In 2009, Parker Lift-Keel yachts ceased trading.

Our interests cover:

  • Pottering, cruising and racing

  • Young and old

  • Family crews to single-handed

  • Short hops to extended cruising

  • Novice to expert

Join the PSSA to get more out of your yacht:

  • Enjoy social events on land and at sea
