Full Programme–Plan C

Full Programme–Plan C

Obviously Covid 19 has had a huge impact on the sailing season. We wish all Wild Spirits and their families the very best in these troubled times.
As a company we are comparatively forutnate in financial terms and the move to Plymouth takes £4K p.a. out of the overheads. I don’t take a wage out of the company and any surplus goes to Charities, unfortunately these won’t benefit so much, but we will keep going.
Below is my 2020 vision for the rest of the season based on the ‘Lock Down’ being sufficiently relaxed that we can re-start on 1st August. It may be that September is more realistic, and we have included the Round the Island Race, but for the rest of 2020 here is our ‘money back’ guarantee
Covid guarantee – if Government restrictions in force 10 days ahead of the planned trip prevent us going ahead you get a full refund. This may be subject to a decision deadline such as if it is not clear by 10 days before the event starts then Paul may cancel and just refund money paid. We won’t accept liability for travel, accommodation and other costs, just the money paid to us.

I hope I am wrong and we can re-start earlier so do drop me an e-mail and we can form a ‘rapid reserve’ if we are ablle to set sail again earlier than August.

Allow for 2 or 3 meals ashore.

JOG Race 17th to 20th September £265 7 Email Wild Spirit

1800 start on the Friday and it is a big tide which would be against us going to the start from Lymington so we will do a 3 day event with meet Thursday night or by 0900 Friday morning. We will sail and practice on Friday morning the race overnight to Cherbourg returning for Sunday probably early afternoon.
I think the destination and timings of this race will change and we may find we have a Saturday morning start with more local race, if this happens we will probably train on the Friday then o/n Cowes and race on Saturday. Cost is £265 but no bookings for this until after 10th April.

Round the Island Race 24th to 27th September. £495 5 Email Wild Spirit

The annual classic Round the Isle of Wight except this year it is now 26th September rather than around June for obvious reasons. It is a glorious spectacle and a race every sailor should do at least once, though for many it becomes addictive. Please approach it as a great event; we will be racing but a number of the competitors won’t really understand the rules and I am not going to spend hours attending protest hearings at the end of the race.
Our package this year is 3 day one starting Lymington. For anyone booking direct with us before 1st June the cost is the same as 2019–£495 for the 3 day package.
Meet Thursday, train friday, then race, then back to Lymington.
Free parking at Lymington plus train as well.

Mile Builder Lymington to Plymouth possibly via France or Channel Islands £475 5 Email Wild Spirit

Meet Lymington Sunday evening with good meal on board then early start Monday .
Several stops which may include France or more likely Alderney if we go South. If we head west then Weymouth, Dartmouth and probably Fowey are possibles. Alright Fowey is west of Plymouth but it is superb especially in the Autumn when we can normally get a walk ashore berth.

From Plymouth we may get a Hire Car back to Lymington but train works well to both locations.

Includes all on board food etc–we don’t do hidden extras.
