Minisail Solent Spring Sail

Post by Rupert » Tue Apr 22, 2014 11:07 am

The Minisails are gathering on the 2nd May bank holiday weekend at Hurst Castle SC for a Solent Spring Sail. No formal racing planned (though I bet there will be sneaky "lets see who's faster" moments!), but sailing in company in a lovely part of the world.

More details can be found on the forum at

Chris and myself will be turning up with two boats if all goes well. Tom has said that he can provide two spare boats for people who don't bring their own. Should be a great weekend.

Hi, Folks.
We have a core of folk committed to coming for the weekend, some folk joining us when they can, and with spare Minisails available, we're hoping to encourage others to "dip in" at some point during the weekend.

The details:
  • Solent Spring Cruise
    24th and 25th May 2014
    Venue: Keyhaven, Hampshire
    Accommodation available in Sea Scout hut for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Cost: £5 per person per night. It's a brick-built "hut" with showers and kitchen!
    Harbourmaster fees: £5 per boat for the weekend
    Suggested donation for HCSC: £5 per boat for the weekend
Full details here:

Love to see anyone who can make it!
Regards, David

Count me in for the Solent Spring cruise.
Spring cruise. . . Makes me want to strap a picnic basket on the hood of the wooden Sprite, plenty of space there.
Depending the weather I'll bring the original or the replica.
