Summer Cruising Plans Outlined at the AGM

An appeal for volunteers to help with our Summer Rally plans

Announcing plans at the HROA AGM held at the Royal Thames Yacht Club, our newly elected Sailing Secretary Judy Walker appealed for volunteers to help with the various stages of planning for the 2020 HROA Summer Rally.

Plans include a cross channel trip to Cherbourg, followed by visits to Guernsey and Jersey, then heading south to the North Brittany coast of France, where members can either make their way back to the UK, or head on further for the rest of the season.

It won't be surprising to learn that it all takes quite a bit of work, and the Sailing Secretary is calling for help with various aspects of organising one of our famed summer rallies, from finding suitable restaurants for us to enjoy a meal now and again together, to activities ashore, our pontoon parties, and things to do. You may have local knowledge of the harbours, or be visiting for the very first time this summer, or indeed not able to come this year but still would like to help?
