This is the first of Sunsail’s Winter Series sailing – a fleet of 20 or more identical 37 ft Sailing boats crewed by teams of enthusiasts racing four races in the Solent. It’s fun, exciting racing, and ideal for occasional sailors like us, as you don’t need to either spend a fortune on your boat to do well, nor be racing as a team week- in week – out.
The Alumni have traditionally challenged the current students in one of the races in this series, and met up for a drink or ten at Rosies Vinyard in Southsea on a Saturday night – come and join the tradition!
BASICS ABOUT THE TRIP
We’re sailing Jeanneau Sunfast 37s. These are 37 ft boats with three cabins (sleeping 2 each), one head (bathroom) and with another three berths in the main saloon. On deck , they’re raced with a crew of between six and eight, and have a furling Genoa, and spinnaker.
How to get down there
We will meet in Port Solent Marina Friday night (6 – 11pm) or Saturday morning. (before 08:30)
By train: Train is probably the safest way, considering occasional beers both before and during the trip. Exact joining instructions are included on the Sunsail webpage (see link at the end of the mail). Let me just tell you this much:
On arriving at Port Solent Marina, follow the main road going straight across the first roundabout. At the next roundabout, bear right (the only way). At the third roundabout, take the second exit. Then drive over two 'sleeping policemen' and take the next right. The Port House building is directly ahead of you. Again, further detail is on the joining instruction.
By car: Does anyone own a car? Let me know if you do and plan to take it down there!
From the west, (Recommended – via M3) motorway access is via the M27 at junction 12. From the east, (A3) take the Hilsea exit off the A27 and follow the signs to Port Solent. From Portsmouth, take the M275 and follow the signs.
Please don't arrive any later than 8.30 am on Saturday morning!! Any "no-shows" (incl. serious latecomers) will be liable to pay the full amount!!!
Stuff you need to bring
Which brings us to our next topic:
Stuff to do before the trip
The £85 fee includes a £25 non- refundable deposit, to book your place. If you drop out after Wed 20th, we’ll keep the full £85, as it’s virtually impossible to get someone else at that late notice,
The Alumni sailing Club has no LBSSA budget, and no sponsors, so the costs of the weekend will be split among us evenly. £85 covers us for seven people per boat, with all other costs to be split among us: these include food (breakfast, lunch), fuel for the boat, travel down to Port Solent, dinner and drinks in the pub etc… We’ll work out the final costs that weekend – it shouldn’t come to more than an additional £20 for the food and fuel. If we have fewer than seven per boat it’ll be more expensive, more than seven, less so. Finally, be aware that there is a £1,000 damage deposit on the boat. We’re liable for any damages to the boat up to that amount. Hopefully there will be no damages!
That should be all. Let me know if there are any questions!
Looking forward to sailing with you all again!
