BYC Summer Cruise - 22 to 27 June 2020

Britannia Yacht Club - 15 Feb 20 General

BYC is organising a summer rally from Dartmouth westwards between 22 and 27 June. The aim is to visit Salcombe, Yealm and Fowey before boats return independently or continue to their summer cruising grounds.

We hope to be accompanied for some of the way by young officers under training, in the BRNC Contessas, before they need to return to the College to continue their studies.

The current draft plan is as follows:

22 June (HW Plym 1940 BST) - depart from Home Ports and cruise to Salcombe; raft on pontoon in The Bag (berths reserved)
Pontoon party.

23 June (HW 2020 BST ) - proceed to the Yealm; raft on upper visitors pontoon (berths reserved)
Informal curry supper in Yealm Yacht Club. £14 per head (includes pudding!)

24 June (HW 2100 BST) - Boats remain in the Yealm (walk and informal lunch in The Ship Inn - no bookings made) or proceed to Plymouth to store ship (nothing planned)

25 June (HW 0930 BST) - Cruise to Fowey.

26 June (HW 1020 BST)) - End of Rally Dinner in Royal Fowey Yacht Club (rig Jacket and tie) £38 per head inc one bottle of house wine per couple.

Participating boats may attend some or all of the venues. People who don’t have boats are very welcome to join in the events.
