Hello GXSA Sailors,

Our next rally is approaching at Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu river on Saturday 22 June. This is a new location for GXSA and will be the first time we have been up to Bucklers Hard as a rally. 

Alongside moorings are reserved and evening dinner will be ‘pub style’ in the Lower Yachtsmen’s bar, reserved for us. It is an interesting and lovely location and hopefully a really great spot for a rally!

I hope you will be able to come along and look forward to seeing you.

Best wishes and kind regards, Nick
