Published 21:34 on 18 Jun 2022
We hope you all enjoyed the long Platinum Jubilee weekend and managed to celebrate in one way or another. Plans are now well in hand for the Solent Platinum Jubilee Celebration in Cowes on Saturday 6th August 2022 please click here to see the programme for the day. It is not too late for your club or class to encourage your members to participate in the events on the day whether it be the motor past, fleet races or Sonar and J70 racing off the RYS line. We are delighted to have a selection of historic boats including Lively Lady and some of the Dunkirk Little Ships taking part and they will be included in the review by the VIPs onboard Wet Wheels 1. This interclub event includes all the Solent clubs and classes and will be a sailing tribute to H M The Queen and we very much hope your club or class will be represented. All club Commodores will have received an invitation to join the VIPs onboard the Wetwheels fleet for the day.
Please help us publicise the day via your social media accounts and websites.
