South Coast Early Summer Rally to Chichester 20th-21st May

The first South Coast Rally this year is due to take place over the weekend of 20th-21st May with the venue being Chichester Marina.
It will be a time of Spring Tides with HW at the marina, situated in the eastern end of Chichester Harbour, an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”, at 13.03 on Saturday and at 13.45 on Sunday.  The tidal stream from the Portsmouth area will run eastwards towards the West Pole beacon, just off the entrance to the harbour, until about 2 hrs before high water and will then carry you up through the harbour towards the marina.  There is usually free flow through the lock into the marina for around 1.5 hrs either side of HW.  There is a waiting pontoon outside the lock, if required.
I will book berths for all participating yachts in the marina although they request that individual skippers contact the marina office during the week before arrival to pay their mooring fee in advance.  If you would like to stay for longer than one night please let me know and I will arrange this for you.
If you would like to attend could you please give me the following information:
The name, length and draught of the boat you will be on,
a phone number which you can be contacted on during the weekend and
the names of the people attending.
We will meet in the marina during the day on Saturday 20th May and will eat in Chichester Yacht Club that evening.  Food orders will be made on the day so there is no need to order in advance.
This event is open to all VSA members, not just those who sail on the South Coast.  If you cannot come by boat you are, of course, still very welcome to join us in Chichester Marina for drinks and the evening meal.  In this case please let me know the names of who will be attending.  Plenty of free parking is available.
I look forward to hearing from you.
