This month in Fixtures


Another film company chose Rye as a location and the traditional New Year meet of the Romney Marsh Hunt at the Mermaid put colour into a grey overcast day. John Minter reports on both. Rye Harbour Sailing Club commodore Caroline Wylson gives an account of the hardy sailors who braved the temperature to compete, with their dinghies in the Club’s Rum Race. From Winchelsea, Richard Comotto tells of the Mummer’s 12th Night as well as the ancient Winchelsea Streete Game, and with still more New Year traditions, we report on the Wassail ceremony held, this year at the Oak in Rye Foreign.
