Leaving Hamble on Friday afternoon once the torrential rain had eased we headed to Lymington for the Ancasta drinks reception at the Mayflower Pub. Just over 30 Beneteau owners and their crew made it to the Pub to enjoy complementary drinks – which considering the weather earlier in the day was an achievement– I think the offer of a free drink provided a great incentive.
On Saturday morning the fleet decided to split due to an unfavourable weather forecast, with some owner’s heading onto Poole and some heading back to Cowes and Portsmouth Harbour.
"Despite the weather it was great to see so many making the effort on the Friday to get to Lymington" – said Bruce Hastie (Beneteau Sales Manager)
