I was asked by a new member what the event is like
Well sometime it is wet! But here goes, Boats tend to sail from CSC through Hurst to the Island and then wait (sometimes overnight) to take the flood tide to Bembridge, giving them enough water for the sand bar. The Bembridge Harbour website has a live feed of the depth available to you online as you approach..
The CSC rally has walk ashore moorings but we will, be rafted out. There is electricity so bring your long cable/splitter.
Friday late afternoon, CSC revellers gathers on the Duver (beach) with their own BBQs and drinks to enjoy a few beach games and possibly a bit of sun.
Some boats arrive Saturday and entertainment is organised by Bembridge Harbour from Saturday onwards for the youngsters, with the crabbing competition and paper boat racing to mention two. Their web page will be undated soon with a detailed itinerary. There is a bar and food at the marquee on the quay. There are plenty of walks as the Duver is a National Trust area. Many catch the water taxi from the pontoon to Bembridge Sailing Club on the other side of the harbour for lunch. Bembridge Village, up the hill, has a few good shops for re-provisioning.
Some boats stay on for (bumbridge) Sunday (over the last few years a few CSC boats have stayed on and made their own entertainment!!!!) BBQed and taken over the marquee as the horse box bar has closed and gone home. It might be different for this year but I wanted to explain the options.
As an idea,, some extend their break by going over to Chichester afterwards, maybe hopping back to the Beaulieu mid river pontoon before heading back home to Christchurch.
Hope this helps.
