Forthcoming Events

    • 22 Sep 2018
    • 23 Sep 2018
    • Mid-Solent to Poole


    The Channel Sailing Club (via RNVR Yacht Club member David Murch) have kindly invited Yachts and Crew from the RNVR Yacht Club to join them in their Passage Races to Poole on 22nd /23rd September and also join them in the evening and overnight arrangements in Poole Harbour.

    The Saturday Race to Poole usually starts around mid Solent at a time suitable to catch most of the westward Tide. The return Race will likewise start at an appropriate time from Poole  on Sunday Morning.  Overnight berthing will be arranged in Poole and Dinner Saturday night at a suitable venue which the CSC hopes the RNVR Yacht Club will join.

    The Passage races are part of the CSC Series of 12 to 16 races and for this the CSC Yachts will be racing on CSC Handicaps.  RNVR Yacht Club yachts will be run using NHC base ratings so everyone can see how well they have done overall.   RNVR Yacht Club yachts  are welcome to join in both Saturday and/or  Sunday Races.    If the RNVR Yacht Club have more crew than the RNVR Yacht Club yachts can handle or if there are no RNVR Yacht Club yachts and some of the RNVR Yacht Club Members would like to experience some relatively light hearted Racing, there maybe additional Space on the CSC Yachts (numbers may have to be limited on this).

    Registration should be completed by 1600hrs the Saturday before. Handicaps are RYA NHC based and available for most of yachts in the Club Fleet.

    The Racing as mentioned is ‘relatively’ light hearted ( everyone likes to win). The CSC Yachts are a mixture of Shapes and sizes, some racers but mostly cruising Yachts. Usually there are anything between 7 to 12 CSC yachts participating.   Yachts may also participate just as a "Rally Entry”. I would anticipate some yachts will be “White Sailed” so don’t worry if you don't have a spinnaker.

    At this stage all we are seeking are EOI's from anyone interested.

    Expressions of interest should be sent to me commodore@rnvryc.org.

    • Mid-Solent to Poole

    The Autumn Meet and Southwest Dinner will come together this year in the delightful Devon harbour of Salcombe.

    It should be possible to berth overnight at that time of year on the walk ashore pontoons as opposed to the buoys. Once we know numbers we will approach the Harbour Master to facilitate this.

    The Dinner will take place in the imposing Salcombe Yacht Club (SYC) on the evening of Saturday 29 September, and prior to the Dinner, there will be an opportunity for some dinghy racing, and a waterborne treasure hunt, and a visit to Overbecks. We are currently looking at venues for the get together on Friday evening after the Vice Commodores naming ceremony of his new acquisition. Again once likely numbers are known we will look at booking a restaurant for Sunday.


    A hidden paradise of subtropical gardens and quirky collections, Overbecks is tucked away on the cliffs above Salcombe, overlooking the harbour entrance, and is a hidden paradise: a subtropical garden, bursting with colour, filled with exotic and rare plants and surprises round every corner, which surrounds the seaside home of scientist and inventor Otto Overbeck. The views from the garden over the estuary and coast are truly breathtaking. Inside, among Otto's eclectic collections, glimpses of a bygone age, are his 'Rejuvenator', once believed to cure all ills, and a melodious giant music box called a polyphon (you can choose a disc to play).

    Overbecks is open daily from 11am to 5pm.
