February Mile Builder

What

This is the third year of running the February milebuilder event. Previously our destination has been Weymouth, but this year the plan is to go eastwards from the Hamble to Brighton or Newhaven. If you have any ambitions to get advanced RYA qualifications you'll need to have some trips of this kind in your log book. Longer legs like this also give everyone a chance to take part in every aspect of getting the boat from A to B.

The boat we'll use is a fully MCA coded Beneteau Oceanis 37. It is a very recent boat in tip top condition, and unlike many other charter companies the one supplying our boat includes cleaning at the end, so instead of spending a couple of hours scrubbing it down you can just grab your gear and leave at the end of the trip. The boat also has full diesel central heating which is ideal for a chilly night.

Quality wet weather gear can be hired from the charter company for a reasonable fee too - let me know if you need it.

Please note that we will meet up on the Thursday evening and leave the boat on Sunday afternoon. There is no sailing planned on the Thursday evening so you can arrive as late as you wish, but of course if you can arrive at the boat by 7:30pm you'll be in time to have dinner with your crewmates.
