The move from Yachthaven, where we were last year is unfortunate but they are sadly unable to accomodate us altogether this year. Queen Anne's Battery is across the water from Yachthaven but they assure us we will be able to raft up together to maintain the convivial atmosphere. Entertainment by the Inner Tube part of the Calstock Rubber Band as last year, will be in the Royal Western YC close by and a busy bar serving good ale and food is just next door to the marina.

We have moved the timing of this event to mid week to ease problems we experienced with bookings over the weekend. Racing in the Sound is planned for the Tuesday.
