Summer Rally to Bembridge – July 2016

11 members of Oxted Offshore and 4 boats cast off for Bembridge on the Isle of White during the last weekend in July for the Oxted Offshore Summer Rally.

The marina staff and facilities were good and we managed to get all boats moored for around 18:00 in time for Commodores Cocktails on Degree of Latitude.
