South West Sports Boat Rally 2017: Dates TBA
What our annual rally event offers....
Our rally aims to offer everyone something they'll enjoy. We have a fantastic bunch of regulars with new friends joining us every year, we are very family friendly, have a great social scene and enjoy getting together and talking about our boats, chilling out and cruising in company, we even rent a pontoon so you have somewhere to berth. We create a schedule for the event, but are very relaxed about what you do. if you feel a trip is too far, you can choose to go off and do you're own thing or just hang out on the pontoon with the comfort of knowing when we'll arrive back. Check out our 2016 Event page for updated info as it evolves.

We do try and make sure we cover all the bases, but equally encourage feedback and ideas on how to improve things. We consider this event as a cooperative and love people to get involved, so if you have a specific skill or expertise and you want to share this, please let us know.
South West Fletcher Boat Rally....
The South West Fletcher Boat Rally website (www.swfbr.org.uk) is the original website created when both Robin and John ran the Fletcher rally. I believe Robin is looking to continue with the Fletcher Rally in 2017, so do check out his site for further details.
We've decided not to include any forums or social areas on this site at the moment as there's really no point in competing with the other great sites out there. Our facebook group is working extremely well but we'll drive people back here for more updates on the rally - this site will always hold the latest info, so always check back here.
A great range of boats....
Over the years now, we've had a great range of boats coming to our rally - but we want more.
Everyone likes to see a varied range, discuss pros and cons, bow riders v cuddy boats, RIB v GRP, cup holders v no cup holders (private joke) etc.. Obviously this is down to owners permission, but many owners have offered to take people out so you can feel what different speed boats are like on the water - you just have to ask them. So far we've had the following brands:
Fletcher, SeaRay, Maxum, Doral, Ring, XS Pro, Skipsplast, Bayliner, Regal & Cranchi.
"Please take some time to visit our sponsors, without which we simply couldn't run the event"
