RAFYC Island Harbour Rally -

24th - 25 July

The Royal Air Force Yacht Club Rallies are usually held at weekends and members arrange to meet up more formally on the Saturday night, but frequently meet informally on Friday nights and Sundays by local arrangement. The usual programme is that after arrival on a Saturday there is Pontoon Party at 17:00 hours, convened near the hosting boat. Watch out for RAFYC battle flags nearby!

Pontoon party etiquette is that you normally bring your own drinks and a plate of nibbles to share with everyone. Normally the Rally Office host arranges for us to eat out on the Saturday evening at a club, pub, restaurant or BBQ on a beach! Payment for moorings and berths is normally sorted out individually on a boat by boat basis and dinner normally paid for at the event.

Occasionally arrangements are made for Safari suppers where we circulate among the various boats for drinks, starters, main courses, desserts etc. Again protocol is to bring glasses and a bottle. These social evenings are again normally coordinated by the Rally Officer. Communication is increasingly carried out by mobile phone, once in port.

The sign-up sheet for Rallies is usually opened approximately 6 weeks before-hand. You can enroll in three ways:

1. Through the RAYFC web site, in due course.

2. Through the club notice board in Riverside House.

3. Call the RAFYC office.
