This Year's News Reports - 2020
  • Autumn Rally 2020 – East Cowes, IoW
    With the ever-changing Covid related restrictions, nobody was sure the Autumn Rally would definitely be possible until a few days beforehand. Although it wasn’t ‘business as usual’, we were confident that enough elements of the Rally spirit could remain, whilst still enabling us to be safe and compliant. Our Rear Commodore – Offshore had been ...
  • Cheese and Wine evening – Sep 2020
    The start of September always means the beginning of the ‘winter’ talks, and this year was no exception, albeit not quite the same. COVID-19 restrictions are still in place, so having around 60 people meeting to share tales of their summer activities while consuming cheese and wine definitely didn’t fit within any of the ...
  • Summer Cruise 2020 – West Country
    Following the necessary cancellation of the West Country Spring Cruise due to the coronavirus pandemic, I was keen to see if there was interest in escaping on a Summer Cruise, albeit limited by the restrictions still in place. Given that we would be unlikely to eat out as one group, that marina availability would be restricted ...
  • Summer Rally 2020 – Island Harbour, IoW
    With lockdown restrictions easing slightly, our approaching Summer rally began to look like it might actually be viable.  We knew we’d have to make some modifications to our normal format, but the decision was taken that it was nothing we couldn’t manage. With our venue being Island Harbour, the tides were even more important than usual. ...

  • Message from the Commodore
    Dear Members,A brief note to let you know that the Yacht Club committee is still active and planning for events later in the year.  We have sadly cancelled the Spring Cruise and the Spring Rally (though we are looking at having the latter in a virtual / on-screen format ).  The Summer Rally also seems unlikely ...
  • COVID-19 Update
    Given the current circumstances, and the Government guidelines regarding precautions necessary to limit the spread of COVID-19, NYC meetings and events have been put on hold. We will keep everybody updated as/when circumstances change, but trust that you understand why the committee believes this has become necessary.
  • AGM – Mar 2020
    Despite many members opting for self-isolation rather risk exposure to the corona virus, there were sufficient members attending to have a quorum and allow the AGM to go ahead. It did mean there was more than enough cheese and wine to go around! Our outgoing Commodore, Barney, gave us a round-up of his time in office ...
  • Spring Cruise – 23-31 May 2020 – details announced
    The 2020 Spring Cruise, organised by our soon-to-be Commodore Leslie Lowenthal, will be heading West! The current plan is for boats to congregate in Portland, then head to Dartmouth (via Lyme Regis for some), before visiting The Yealm, Plymouth, Salcombe, Brixham and Weymouth. 14 boats are lined up to attend at the moment, so it promises to ...
  • Autumn Rally – 26th/27th Sept 2020 – date announced
