This year the club is organising a social weekend down in the Solent, to coincide with some sailing trips being run by our regular skippers. The aim of the weekend is for lots of our members to meet up and enjoy a few well-earned drinks plus a fun evening out after a day on the water. It promises to be a great occasion and a superb opportunity to make new sailing friends as we all celebrate the September Equinox – the official end of summer!
The plan is for several of our skippers to arrange a typical weekend of sailing, and for all the crews to get together ashore. The weekend will probably begin with everyone meeting up in Hamble on Friday evening and heading to a pub for dinner and a few drinks. The Saturday will be kept clear for sailing, when it’s likely everyone’s yachts will be out early for a full day on the water! After an exciting day afloat on our respective boats, we’ll reconvene in Lymington on the Saturday evening, where the LSC Committee will have arranged drinks on the marina pontoon. Those drinks will be followed by a 3-course dinner at Stanwell House Hotel, who have given us private use of their Burcher & Co. restaurant for the night. All crews will depart for their respective home marinas on the Sunday.
The event is open to all LSC members, and please feel free to invite your friends too – they are most welcome to join the social or one of the boats as temporary members.
IF YOU’D LIKE TO ATTEND, SIMPLY REPLY TO THIS ADVERT. One of the LSC Committee will then be in touch with you regarding the social activities, and one of the skippers will reply to you separately regarding the actual sailing. And don’t worry if you don’t really know anyone in the club yet, as this weekend is the perfect opportunity to meet lots of our members all together in one beautiful setting!
The social aspects of the weekend are being organised by the LSC Committee. And, at present, at least four of our regular skippers (namely Mike Johns, Hema Patel, Simon Tottman and David Trafford-Roberts) plan to be out sailing that weekend.
- For the Social: £20 (payable to the LSC in early September), which is to cover the cost of the pontoon drinks party and the 3-course evening meal (excluding drinks) at Stanwell House Hotel.
- For the Sailing: As usual, this will be arranged directly between you and your individual skipper, although all skippers have agreed to charge the same price of £175.
Terms, conditions and disclaimers:
Please note that the LSC itself will only be responsible for organising the social/ashore elements of the weekend. All the sailing/afloat elements of the weekend will remain the responsibility of each individual skipper (in relation to his or her own boat and crew), as is always the case with sailing trips advertised via this forum. As such, the following terms, conditions and disclaimers apply purely to the social/ashore elements of the weekend (the ‘social event’). The LSC and/or the Event Host will request payment of £20 from you in early September in order to secure your place at the social event. If the LSC and/or the Event Host needs to cancel the social event for any reason you will be refunded in full. The LSC and/or the Event Host reserves the right to cancel any participant. In the event of cancellation by you no refund will be given but you may be able to transfer your place to another LSC Meetup member. By responding to this LSC Meetup event you acknowledge and agree that the principal purpose of the social event is to provide a forum for members of the LSC Meetup group to engage in social activities. The Meetup® Event Host is an occasional Event Host and not a professional organiser (as such term is defined under The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992); accordingly, this event shall not be construed as a “package tour” or "package holiday".
