    Notes:

    1. It is likely that a number of attendees will not be able to arrive by sea with their Fishers - we will therefore aim to provide a list of possible accommodation both in West Cowes and in Southampton. There is a regular ferry service between Cowes (Isle of Wight) and Southampton.

    2. It is also possible that some attendees, who are unable to bring their Fishers, would like to participate in the organised sailing events - in these circumstances we will attempt to arrange for suitable crewing opportunities with the Fisher owners who are able to bring their vessels

    3. We will aim to provide souvenirs of this 50th Anniversary Rally (e.g. an inscribed plaque similar to that produced for the 40th Anniversary Rally, a suitably embroidered commemorative FOA penant etc). However, these will have to be ordered at the event and delivered afterwards.

    To express an interest or request further information:  Please contact the organiser  Geoff Brown, Rear Commodore South. F25 ‘Island Lady.
