This weekend event will be based in the Solent and for Saturday evening will join the last day of the RNSA Midweek Mini Cruise at Gins Farm in the Beaulieu River at the RSYC clubhouse. The Beaulieu River is possibly the prettiest river in the Solent. It is one of the few privately owned rivers in the world, a haven for wildlife and largely unspoilt.
Moorings are allocated by the RSYC bosun on Ch77 on arrival. There are walkashore pontoon spaces for about 16 yachts. This should be sufficient but otherwise he will allocate us to nearby mid-stream berths. The bosun provides a launch service until 1800 with a private arrangement later.
HWP 1648 BST.
There will be a set menu dinner at 19.30 following drinks from the bar. The dinner (£22.00 for two courses and £25.00 for three courses) will be accompanied by The Last Night of the Proms on TV. Dress for the dinner smart casual.

We will aim to raft up in Osborne Bay on Saturday lunchtime at approximately 12.30 (subject to weather). The long website link below tells us that the new yellow buoys in Osborne Bay license the swimming and do not affect anchoring of yachts
No payment is required at the time of booking. Individuals to settle Gins Farm costs on the night.

Safety and Insurance
Last but not least a note on safety. Where a boat (meaning its skipper and crew) takes part in a Club event the boat is entirely responsible for its own safety and the safety of anyone else having anything to do with the use of the boat, whether afloat or ashore, and nothing, whether in this notice of event or anywhere else, reduces this responsibility. It is for the boat to decide whether to take part in the event and whether it is fit to sail in the conditions in which it will find itself. By launching or going to sea, the boat confirms that it is fit for those conditions and that its crew is competent to sail and use it. The boat is required to hold adequate insurance and in particular insurance against third party claims. Nothing done by the Club or the event organisers will reduce the responsibility of the boat nor will it make the organisers responsible for any loss, damage, death or personal injury, howsoever it may have occurred, as a result of the boat taking part in the event. The organisers includes everyone helping to run the event, and include the individual organisers and the Club’s Officers and Committee. By registering for the event you agree to these statements and confirm that you will comply with Rule 24 of the Club’s Rules and ensure that these statements are brought to the attention of and agreed by the boat’s skipper and/or crew.
Bookings should be made using the Register button, as soon as possible.
* * NEW BOOKING PROCESS: Would all members register themselves individually. If you are crewing for another member, please put the name of their boat into the field in the booking form. Only non-members should be recorded as guests.
If you want to add more guests but you have already made a booking, then make a new booking for yourself, choose No for any meal and booking options for yourself (i.e. you are creating a "blank" booking for yourself) and then add your guests in the usual way. * *
