Dieppe Dash 2019 (Cruising Rally)
The Dieppe Dash was conceived by Brighton Marina Yacht Club as a way of pulling together boat owners and boating people of all types with a common goal, enjoying their boats and meeting like minded people. Cruising boats can make their own arrangements for the crossing or join the main Cruising fleet. You are more likely to make a trip if you have planned it with, and make the passage with, other boat owners.
Sail Cruising RallySail in company and safety, and enjoy a great weekend in France. Any previous participants will tell you that the hospitality and support of Dieppe and the French organisers is quite astonishing. The Yacht club has a warm welcome with food and drink waiting for you when you arrive in Dieppe as well as a weekend schedule including the prize giving.
Motor Cruising RallyMotor cruisers are very important to the Dieppe Dash – BMYC are committed to supporting motor boaters and growing the motor section of the club. We are all facing the rising fuel costs which clearly effect motor cruisers more than sailing craft owners. We hope though that, even if this is the only trip of the year, many motor boats will be able to participate this year as they have in the past.
Social RallyTravel across to Dieppe on the ferry and enjoy a great weekend enjoying the hospitality and support of the Port of Dieppe and the French organisers. The Yacht club has a warm welcome with food and drink waiting for you when you arrive in Dieppe as well as a weekend entertainment schedule. Dieppe Dash Website
