Mid week rally to Beaulieu

"Early sun on Beaulieu water lights the underside of oaks"

It wasn't quite like John Betjeman's poem 'Youth and Age on Beaulieu River' when the hardy bunch of mid week ralliers sailed round to Bucklers Hard.  In spite of the weather 12 boats went to Bucklers Hard bringing around 30 people to a very lively pontoon party.

2016 Solent Cruiser Race
2016 Solent Cruiser Race
After a week of very cold weather the forecast for the May Bank holiday weekend did not look too good. But as luck would have it we managed to skip most of the rain on Saturday and Sunday and it did warm up a bit.
The breeze was gentle from the Northwest and the sun was shining but clouds bubbled up when the wind went round to the Southwest.

The Spring Ladies Charity Lunch
The Spring Ladies Charity Lunch
The sun shone, views along the river from the upper bar were as good as it gets and the 72 lady members and their guests who gathered for the lunch raised the fantastic sum of £350 for our charities.
The lunch was a great success. The generous portions of gammon served with parsley sauce followed by lemon and lime tart, coffee and mints proved both delicious and popular.
