Organised by LRSCA

A Celebration of the Scow
     21st & 22nd July 2018
REGRETTABLY CANCELLED due to lack of entries

Hosted by RLymYC

Avon Scows, Bembridge Scows, Chichester Scows, Keyhaven Scows, Lymington River Scows, Palace Quay Scows, West Wight Scows and many traditional wooden Scows as well - all derived from the same basic design but each with significant differences. To help celebrate its 21st Anniversary the Lymington River Scow Class Association has joined with the RLymYC to organise a Rally to get as many different examples to sail together and to provide the opportunity for owners to compare notes, even swap boats.

We've picked a week-end in July 2018 with neap tides and all Scow owners, whatever the age or design of their craft, are invited to take part. Bring your Scow to the Royal Lymington YC for 4 short races, two on the Saturday afternoon and two on the Sunday morning. We're also planning a seamanship event and a special kind of Pursuit race plus a Concours d'Elegance with an award for the best presented boat.

Visitors will be temporary Members of the RLymYC for the week-end and will have full use of the bar and restaurant. There will be tea and doughnuts when competitors return after the Saturday racing, awards for the day's winners and then an informal supper in the Clubhouse later on. Sailing will finish around 1300 on the Sunday along with a Paella BBQ and more awards.

If coming from the Island, RLymYC RIB's can provide safety cover (or a tow) to and from Yarmouth. Visiting scows may lie afloat on RLymYC pontoons in perfect safety or the Club can provide trolleys by prior arrangement. Some overnight accommodation is available with Club Members.
