1922 to 2022: Our Centenary Year

Celebrating 100 Years of the Royal Lymington Yacht Club



Centenary Regatta: 18 June 2022.  (Reserve Day 19 June 2022)

 

Outline Plan:

Cruiser/Racers & J/80s will have one long race starting at 1300 from a Committee Boat anchored at the end of the river and finishing at approximately 1600.
 
The XODs and Folkboats will have one race started from a committee boat with the first start at 1400 finishing at approximately 1600. This race will count towards the Saturday points trophies.
 
The Cruising Division will anchor in lines between the Platform and Pylewell Mark being in position by 1500, dressed overall and prepared for review.
 
The Motorboat Division will also anchor inshore of the Cruising Division by 1500, again dressed overall and prepared for review.
 
The Scows will be doing a circumnavigation of an island, probably Pylewell, starting at approximately 1430.
 
The senior dinghy racing fleets, including Lasers, Fevas, 29ers, 420s, Aeros etc will be racing from a committee boat to the West of the river, starting at 1400, finishing about 1600. This will be mixture of PY and class racing depending on entries.
 
The Silver Fleet Optimist and Tera Sport Fleets will be racing from a committee boat in Oxey Lake, starting at 1400 and finishing at about 1600.
 
The Mariners will have an expedition to Moses Dock in Oxey Lake where they will be rewarded with ice creams! Starting 1430 from the slipway.
 
The Shipmates will also have an expedition to Moses Dock in Oxey Lake in WJS Scows where they will also be rewarded with ice creams! Starting 1430 from the Scow Pontoon.
 
Any member who wishes to join in on a SUP, rowing boat or canoe is very welcome to enter and join the groups at Moses Dock in Oxey Lake.
 
After Racing there will be tea and cake at the Club, with Harbour Games as well as games on the Green, along with live music, food, drink and entertainment until 2100.
 
Obviously to make this all happen we will need a lot of helpers afloat, including ferry drivers, safety boat crews and crewed members RIBs, as well as volunteer helpers ashore, for such jobs as slipway marshals, tallies, issuing ice-creams at Moses Dock, setting up tea etc.
