Rally and Event reports 2015
Gins Farm Rally 2015 (9-10 May)
was held on Saturday 9th May. 31 members and 9 boats attended
It was a breezy beat from Portsmouth on Saturday in F5-6 but a fine close
reach back on Sunday in F4-5. Very enjoyable pontoon party and dinner.
Our thanks to John Gorrie for organising this rally.
Royal Yacht Squadron - Bicentennial Regatta (25-31 July)
The J Class were invited to take part in the RYS International Bicentenary Regatta in Cowes. They were berthed at Ocean Village and racing was from the RYS Line. This will follow on from a J Class Regatta in Falmouth.
GXSA had several boats on-the-water to marvel as these impressive yachts sail around the Solent.
America's Cup World Series at Portsmouth (23 - 26 July)
The foiling AC45 catamarans visited Portsmouth this year in practice for the America's Cup competition which takes place in 2017.
This week marked an unprecedented opportunity to see the world's best monohulls (J-Class) and Catamarans (AC45) on the water at the same time.
GXSA was there to watch, from our "floating hotel" (members' yachts!)
