After her extensive renovations this winter, Marcita is spending the summer on the Solent based at Port Hamble. See below for the Regattas etc., which will punctuate her season.

Bareboat or Berth
. There are three legs either side of the event which you can book either bareboat or on a berth basis.
If you opt to take a berth your skipper will be an experienced member who has skippered Marcita in previous seasons. Excluding the SdG, there will be a maximum of three onboard so we only have 12 places available excluding the skipper. Those with the relevant experience to act as skipper get a 25% discount.
