With that in mind – and hoping to appeal to those who love setting sail from our wonderful shores – Isle of Wight Day are hosting a ‘Float Your Boat’ event on September 23rd.
Whether you’re an experienced seaman (or woman) or just love to get on the water, we’d like to see the Solent filled with vessels.
Sail boats, power boats, fishing boats – all are welcome to take part. Why not dress up as pirates
or host a boat party? There’s plenty of bunting to go round (and there may even be a prize for the best dressed boat!).
We’re looking for some clubs to take centre stage (centre sea?) and fly the flag for Isle of Wight Day. If you’d like to find out how your club could get involved, get in touch on email@example.com
