Dates for your Diary

During our successful rendezvous at the Royal Southern Yacht Club (RSYC) last year, our Vice-Commodore Peter Melson asked for a show of hand as to how many members would be happy to return to the RSYC for our 2024 rendezvous when he would be Commodore and hosting the event. Overwhelmingly members voted to return to the RSYC and I now have pleasure in attaching details of this years rendezvous.

Following the OWYC's 2023 AGM a proposal was put to hold our 2024 AGM at the same time as the 2024 Rendezvous and you will see on the attached programme that the AGM is scheduled for 1500 on Tuesday 25th June, the first event of the rendezvous. All OWYC member are welcome to attend irrespective of whether they are attending the rendezvous or not.

The RSYC has twelve accommodation rooms to a high standard and many members, knowing we would be returning the following year, advanced booked this years accommodation before leaving in 2023.  There are now only two single rooms left available in the clubhouse which will be available until 1st April and then released back to the club. Should you want to take up on these rooms please phone RSYC reception on 023 8045 0302 to make the booking and inform then that you are attending the OWYC Rendezvous.  Do not go on the RSYC website and click on 'BOOK NOW' as this will take you to Booking.Com who normally handle bookings on behalf of the RSYC and they will tell you there are no rooms available. However there is a wide selection of good B&Bs in Hamble close to the clubhouse and details of these are in the attached information on the Rendezvous. Additionally the club has its own car park for visitors attending events and staying at the club.               

The RSYC also has its own marina right in front of the clubhouse and will be able to provide moorings for our boats. There will therefore be the minimum of travelling for skippers and their crews between boats and the events.  At the same time it will be easier for attendees without boats to visit friends afloat.

Full details of the rendezvous programme together with information on venue, accommodation options and the booking form is now attached.  This is being sent out to members of the OWYC, Conway Cruising Club and Old Pangbournian Yacht Club and well as OWs in the Association located in the south of England.

I would be grateful if you could return your booking forms to me by email or post by 1st April.

Your Commodore, Peter Melson and his wife Janet, look forward to welcoming you in June to our 2024 Rendezvous at the Royal Southern Yacht Club.
