Melmore Rally this weekend Sat 10 July

The Annual Melmore Rally is this weekend, and this year we hope to leave the marina!

Full race instructions will be provided on the day on VHF Ch 6.

The traditional Commodore’s inspection will be in Fanny’s Bay on Saturday evening, and the return to the Marina will be an informal cruise, with some boats electing to sail further over a long weekend. As ever we will all look forward to seeing the photographs 🙂
