Rally to St Malo and the Rance
The Easter Rally to St Malo is now fully booked. If you would still like to join us, please email the yacht club at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 732229 to be added to our reserve list.
The planned itinerary (subject to weather, etc) is as follows:
- Friday 7th April Travel to St Malo to arrive in time for the first lock into the inner Bassin Vauban on the early evening tide. Cruising in company will be an option and we will hold a briefing during the week before. Or you can just join us there at your leisure. We have been allocated a variety of moorings in the Vauban marina some of which may require rafting depending on numbers. Boats will need to make their own dinner arrangements for the evening.
- Saturday 8th April We lock out of St Malo and through the Rance Barrage in time for the lunchtime closure and make our way up the beautiful Rance estuary to Plouër sur Rance marina before the sill closes. We intend to arrange activities in the afternoon depending on the weather and there will be a complimentary drinks reception early evening. Boats will need to make their own dinner arrangements for the evening.
- Sunday 9th April Boats that can and wish to travel up to Dinan will pass through the Chatelier lock before closure. Nothing formal is organised in Dinan, apart from the moorings, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from during the afternoon and evening.
- Monday 10th April The return journey to Jersey at your own pace on the morning tide or stay a little longer if you are able.
The £10 per boat non-refundable (unless we cancel the rally due to the weather) entry fee should be paid by contacting the office or making a transfer direct to the Club account.
We do hope the weather will be kind to us and we can repeat the success of last years Rance Cruise but without the fog at the beginning. We hope you can join us on this, and future rally events.
