The Brightlingsea Rally is a joint event with Maldon Little Ship Club and Tollesbury Cruising Club.

Saturday 14th July 2018 - Joint Get Together with Maldon Little Ship Club at Brightlingsea

Sunday 15th July 2018 - Cricket Match on Buxey Sands between Maldon LSC and Tollesbury CC


This get-together is an informal gathering for those interested in sailing to Brightlingsea on the East Coast on Saturday. High Water is at 13:51.

There will be a pontoon party with Maldon LSC. John Boyce of MLSC generously provides his finest beer from his Maldon Brewery. In past years this has always gone down very well. A small charge of £5 per person is requested at registration to cover a few nibbles and wine to help the party along.

As this is an informal rally berthing costs will be the responsibility of individual skippers likewise evening meals. Individual skippers and crews can join in with others on what is decided on the day or make their own arrangement on board or ashore. As I said this is a very relaxed rally.

The Sunday morning is an early start for those who would like the experience of walking on the Buxey Sands and attending what is loosely called a cricket match between MLSC and Tollesbury CC, volunteered players may be requested. It is great fun and a chance to experience this isolated, lonely sandbank in the knowledge that there are friendly boats and yachtsmen around.

To book please send an email to Sue Cossell with details of boat and crew names by Wednesday 11th July.
