30th Anniversary Rally 2019

Plans well advanced for the rally to be held 13th-15th Sept 2019 in Portsmouth Harbour.

Next year 2019 will see the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Hallberg Rassy Owners' Association and at our recent AGM members voted unanimously to mark the occasion: As you might expect our indomitable Social Sec Sue Ross has already launched into action planning ahead to celebrate in true HROA style!

The aim is to gather members from both east and south west, as well as the Solent to meet in Portsmouth Harbour towards the end of the sailing season. We’ll start at the excellent Premier Marina in Gosport on Friday, 13th September 2019 with a spit roast in the evening for those that have arrived. On Saturday the plan is to organise some fun activities followed in the evening with our main event: A formal dinner to celebrate the anniversary hosted at the nearby Royal Navy Submarine Museum. The evening will include guided tours of HMS Alliance during the early part of the evening, along with full access to the museum itself.

We’ll be putting together some further activities on Sunday morning before the rally departs on the afternoon tide. Members may like to include a trip to the Southampton Boat Show as it will be on for the whole of the following week. And of course there are several hotels in Gunwharf for those who plan to attend by car. As things develop, we’ll keep everyone updated.
