Late May Bank Holiday Forts and Follies BBQ

 26 May 2018 – 28 May 2018

Fort Victoria

About the Forts & Follies Cruise

The plan is to head to Yarmouth for a BBQ at Fort Victoria and spend  another night at the Folly. Tides are favourable for a lunchstop in the River Beaulieu on one of the three days.

Our previous BBQ weekends have become favourite UK events so book early to avoid disappointment.


Taking advantage of the Bank Holiday weekend, we’ll get together on Friday night in Hamble or Southampton and get settled in. Over the next two nights we plan to spend one night in Yarmouth and BBQ at Fort Victoria and one night at the Folly Inn up the Medina River from Cowes.  The Folly is renowned for it’s lively evenings with dancing on the tables.


There are BBQ facilities available to use at Fort Victoria so we’ll moor in Yarmouth Harbour and head 0.5m towards the Needles to the fort where we’ll spend the evening.  Each boat will prepare a salad to share.
