A reminder of our end of season rally at Kielder Water 14th - 16th October...
As with previous rallies at Kielder, we will be hosted by cruising-friendly Kielder Water Sailing Club. Kielder Water is the largest reservoir (by volume) in the UK, with a surface area of 4.2 square miles and a shoreline 27.5 miles long. It is a great place to cruise, with many bays and inlets. The club house is a cosy log cabin on the shore of the lake, with space to camp or park a campervan or caravan. The charge, including the use of club facilities and Northumberland Water's access charge to the water is £10 per adult for the two days (Friday evening to Sunday evening) or £15 if you want to stay on for Monday 17th too. Everyone who has been to previous Kielder rallies has had a great time and been impressed by the reservoir and its environs. The wild open spaces of Northumberland are one of England's great undiscovered secrets. Come and discover for yourself!
Please get in touch to let me know if you intend coming to the rally.
Should anyone wish to take advantage of the glorious weather that's forecast , I'll be there from Wednesday afternoon. I'm going up early to prepare my other boat for potential buyers to view on Thursday. If the barrier to the sailing club is locked, limbo underneath and walk down to the clubhouse/slipway. I'll not be far away (unless I've taken them for a sail on Thursday afternoon of course) and can let you in. If you can't find me you should be able to get me on 07974 009902 if the Great God Orange blesses me with a signal - this is wild Northumberland you know
