25th Anniversary ‘Parade of Sail’

To mark the Anniversary there will be a Parade of Sail on Sunday 5th July

You are invited to join in the parade and afterwards at Waldringfield Sailing Club for a barbeque.

All boats are welcome and it is the intention to arrive off Waldringfield Clubhouse at 1500 hrs just before High Water.

Please start where most convenient but suggest Felixstowe Ferry or Woodbridge. On arrival circulate anticlockwise around Stonner Island (if draft of vessel allows).

The Excelsior Band will be playing at the Club to celebrate your arrival

There will be a limited number of moorings available for visitors. Please contact Mark Barton (Waldringfield Boatyard: 01473 736260) or Tony Lyons (Harbour Master: 07925 081 062).

The barbeque will commence at 1700 hrs two hours after the sail past and is intended to give skippers time to return to their moorings or if they prefer to anchor at Waldringfield before the barbeque. Yachts ‘dressed overall’ will add to the occasion. We will have a traditional jazz band playing from about 6pm.

So that we can estimate numbers please contact Peter Thubron (see below) with your name, telephone number and the name of your vessel with a brief description of it (special prizes to be awarded), before the end of June. If you are joining in the barbeque tickets are £10 or £8 for children 8 years and under. Please send a cheque payable to the RDA.

Peter Thubron, Turner Gardens, Woodbridge, IP12 4JD (01394 387 343, pjthubron@yahoo.co.uk).

Note: This is not a race so should not affect the insurance of your vessel but check with your insurers if in doubt. The RDA will not accept any responsibility for damage sustained during the Parade.
