AOA60 – Rally in Suffolk

August 24 - August 27

This event is a get-together of Fairey boats, their owners, former owners, members and anyone with an interest in these iconic boats.

The AOA60 Rally will be held at Suffolk Yacht Harbour (SYH) from Friday 24 to Monday 27 August 2018, followed by the AOA60 East Coast Cruise in Company from Tuesday 28 to Friday 31 August 2018. The AOA60East Coast Race will be part of the West Mersea Regatta on Saturday 1 September 2018.

Please read the details below and let us know as soon as possible about your plans to attend using this proforma.

The events are open to anyone with an interest in the Fairey yachts and we hope as many AOA Members and their friends as possible will join us, whether by boat (N051o59.4’ E001o16.6’) or by road (IP10 0LN).

We hope you will be able to us for a few days but the Saturday and Sunday are designed to support day visits for those that can’t.  You will be able to get some time on the water, catch up with old friends and join in the evening socials.

SYH cranes, hoists and launching ramp will be available throughout this period on weekdays. Self-launching down the ramp is available over the weekend. AOA60will be based in the East Anglian Sailing Trust Community Centre (EAST). The Harbourmaster has provisionally reserved up to 6 berths at preferential rates for the weekend. Atalanta Mary and Colchide are already berthed at SYH.

Here are the plans for the AOA60 Rally and East Coast Race, but please note that all
timings and details are subject to weather conditions and the number of participants.
