Bookings are now open for the 2022 Arrow Trophy Support Rally organised by the OPYC, running from the evening of Friday 30 September through to Sunday 02 October.
Friday night arrivals will join the crew for an evening meal in Cowes, probably a very convivial “Italian”, but they will also be boats likely to be offering spare berths for use by crew and non-boat owner attendees. Our main social event will be Saturday night when we will be hosting a pontoon/shipboard pre-dinner drinks party for the crews of Pangbourne and Roedean. Indeed, any OP who would like to support this event attending either by land (ferry) or sea would be most welcome. Cowes is used to hosting major sailing events and a wide range of on-shore accommodation is available.
This year is also very special as it will be the very first year of “Pangbourne’s” three year tenure of leading the Arrow Trophy Yacht Racing Association’s Management Committee!
Do please support our crew and our guys beavering away behind the scenes doing all the work by coming along and joining in with the festivities in Cowes.
The weekend’s racing takes place over two days in The Solent on the 1st and 2nd October but, arguably, the main event is the Saturday Night Dinner for which purpose we need to know numbers in advance; boats and people!
The racing itself is highly competitive, challenging and extremely enjoyable. James Minter has organised the Pangbourne crew this year – they need our support.
Full racing event information is available at www.arrowtrophy.org.uk
Provisional berth reservations for OPYC members have been made at Cowes Yacht Haven. All those wishing to attend should tell us as soon as possible please as we need to be able to confirm total numbers in advance for both berthing and catering purposes.
If you have any questions, please let me know by email as above or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
