MENGHAM RYTHE SC OPEN MEETING – 22/23 SEPTEMBER 2018

4 or 5 races will be sailed over the two days in the sheltered waters of Chichester Harbour.
The club is located at Marine Walk, Hayling Island PO11 9PG. Please visit the club website http://www.mengeham.org.uk if you require further details on how to get there and the facilities available.
Due to tide times, it’s an early start on Saturday. The Briefing will be at 09.00, with the first start at 10.00. Thirty minutes should be allowed to sail from the club to the start line. The first race on Sunday will be at 10.00 as well, so we will be finish sailing by early afternoon.
Competitors are welcome to arrive on Friday evening. The bar will be open from 8pm.
Camper vans and caravans may stay at the club for free.
On Saturday evening, we will have dinner at a local restaurant. It would be helpful if you could indicate in advance whether you will want dinner, so a table can be booked.

Planning to be there and yes please for Saturday Dinner.

Sunday is a problem as I have to find a Swap for rescue duty at my local club.

Pleased to say I have swapped my Club duty rota so have the whole W/e. Looks like it will be wise to arrive / get rigged the night before.

Wind forecast (presently) WSW 12 - 15mph. :)

It would be helpful if sailors could indicate if they are planning to attend the open meeting and whether they would like to reserve one or more places at the restaurant - probably the Mogul Indian in Mengham.
Thanks

Phil,

I'll be there both days and for the evening meal.

Weather forecast looking good so let's have a good turnout.

The current weather forecast is looking good for Saturday, but storms on Sunday. There are a series of depressions coming across the Atlantic and when and where they hit the UK is ever changing.

Roger and I will review the forescast tomorrow morning (Thursday) and will make a final decision on whether to proceed with the Open Meeting.

In view of the weather forecast for this weekend, with strong gales forecast for Sunday in particular, it has been decided to cancel the open meeting. :(
