I was talking to Ardglass Marina today about launching. In all but the lowest of tides (when there may be an hour's delay) there is no problems launching there. They say lots of guys (and gals!) launch ribs to go out diving from there. They also say the slip is long and wide and cost is 3 to launch and same to recover. They would be delighted to accommodate us on June 5th and are open from 8am to at least 10pm. If anyone wanted you could also launch on the Friday evening and tie up in the Marina overnight.

Good work Tony! Sounds fine. I don't know what my plans for Friday are although I plan to stay in Ardglass on return from the IOM.

I suspect that we will make the trip up on Saturday AM, keeps costs down and the rig will be more secure. Might leave the rib in the Marina Saturday night. More beer time! It'll probably depend on parking at the accommodation.

We will be passing through Friday evening at some point, possibly going down the M74 though depending on what we think of the two routes.
We can get across to Stirling and down quicker than going through Glasgow even though its longer............

I am now booked into Isle of Whithorn for the fri/sat nights, any idea when we are meeting in Douglas or are there plans at all?
If not I'll need to make arrangements to tie up etc over the next week or so. it close enough that folk must have an idea if they are going by now?

To make Douglas for 1100, I'd guess we'd need to be departing Ardglass for 0830 - it's c. 50Nm. I don't really think that that is realistic, but we three can discuss that at this end now. I'll be coordinating with Parm and Tonymac as this week progresses.

Donegaldan and myself are good to go (one rib) with another possible crew member/fourth rib, depending. He'd be a bonus, 'cos he's a Helicopter Whisperer.

Cypman/Brian have kindly offered advice/assistance with mooring/transport/line catching, so I think it would be rude of us not to avail...

Are the welsh lot not coming then? it looked earlier in the year if it was going to be loads of folk and its now just down to the Celts............
If 11:00 is the time I will plan to that. If the weather is good enough we will most likely come down the West side and round the bottom to Douglas giving us the shortest run home later.
The only thing left to organise is the marina which I will call about if nothing is arranged groupwise by the weekend.
