A Chance to Sail with East Sussex 1


If you are an MVS member and would like to sail on East Sussex 1, along with the East Sussex Sovereign Harbour Unit, there are a number of opportunities over the coming weeks.

Bank Holiday Weekend (Sat 23 & Sun 24)

Daytime training trips around the Solent will operate on these days.

Contact Greg Darby on 01892 853500 or email: darbymountbank@msn.com as quickly as possible if you would like to be on board on either of the days or both.

Shoreham Airshow (Fri 29 to Sun 31)

The current plan is for ES1 to sail overnight to Brighton Marina on Friday 29 August, patrol off Shoreham on Saturday, overnight in Shoreham on Saturday night and patrol off Shoreham again on Sunday until standing down at about 1800.
She will then sail back to the Solent, provisionally to Gosport Marina.

Members from outside the Solent region may need to join on Thursday evening and leave on Monday morning
