Royal Southern 2016 Motorboat Events

There is an exciting Programme of MotorBoat Events at the Royal Southern this year - Inshore, Offshore and Ashore.

From the Flagship events of the Deauville Rally, the Motorboat Open Weekend and the Christmas Dinner to the weekend Solent Rallies and Rib BBQs there is something for all ages and all types of boat.

The Rallies are very much informal low cost events and for the Solent Rallies we have also arranged tuition in Boat handling, Engine maintenance and Electronic navigation for those who are interested.

The Rib Rallies are all accessible by other modes of transport so you don't need to have a rib to attend and all are welcome at the lunchtime BBQs.

So why not come along for an hour, a day, or a weekend to enjoy events in and around the Solent travelling in Company with other Club members, families and friends.

Our Commodore Karen Henderson-Williams was recently interviewed by Sasha Twining on BBC Radio Solent's H20 slot.
Karen was asked about her childhood and how she got into sailing with her parents, how she progressed from dinghies into keel boats and about her role in helping to develop youth sailing at the Club. She explained her current role as well as her stewardship of the Royal Southern as only the second lady Commodore in the Club's 179 year history. Karen also discussed her aims and objectives for the Club going forward. It's a great listen, and we hope you enjoy it.
