IT’S ON AGAIN!

THE FRENCH ISLAND RUN

9:00 a.m. SATURDAY 22nd FEBRUARY 2020

Newhaven Yacht Squadron Round French Island Trip

Come and be a NYS Cruiser!

See sights you’ve probably never seen before: Hastings/Tyabb from the water; Joe’s Island??(it’s not); French Island North Coast; experience the ‘Channel Challenge’ (as in staying in it – the channels get narrow up the top end of the Bay); travel over ‘The Hump’ at the far side of French Island – which basically has zero water at low tide (yes we are targeting high tide!); then back down past Land Lang, Corinella, and back to NYS.

All good fun and very valuable experience in using your GPS and depth sounder.

Our hosts for the day are Andy Chappell, Robert Millard, and Garry Richards.
