If you are planning to overnight here then Peel is good. The inner harbour (marina) is protected by a water retention gate with access only available 2 hours either side of high water. This would provide access on Friday between 1500 and 1900hrs, with a Sunday departure between 0426 and 0826 hrs !!!
If you want all tide access it is either Douglas or Port St Mary harbours.

For all of you intending to visit us please let us know what you are planning to do and then we can do our bit at this end.

We are planning to arrive Douglas at approx 11am. Haven't made any specific plans yet on where or what to do when, and if, we get across as getting there seems enough of a leap of faith so far based on last years weather.
I am hoping there is a group plan of some sorts otherwise we just intend to have a wander around Douglas and try and watch a race or two where we can.
What are others plans?

Bump!

Fingers crossed, the long range WX is looking good (which is kinda wishful thinking, but at least it's not giving Gales).

Team (Northern) Ireland intend to make an early depart from Ardglass arriving (decending) on Douglas at 1100hrs to meet with Team Scotland (himself) and any Team Taffs that make it . Brave words indeed...

We're currently planning by PM so look quiet, but any other ribs from this side are very welcome to join up too. We'll be liasing with BruceB for moorings and hopefully Cypman and Brian for Craic when we get final plans - next day or so (Hi guys )

Yep, looks like I am on my own and have no friends for this trip
We will be coming down via Girvan after all passing around 3-4pm on Friday.
The tides are good for a Saturday morning launch and evening recovery at Whithorn and we will be leaving around 09:30 if the weather isn't flat for a direct run to Douglas or around 07:00 if its flat calm for a circumnavigating route round island to Douglas.
I can't figure out from the PM's if I am supposed to be organising something or not for anyone bar myself?
At the moment I am still working on us only for the Douglas end as well as Whithorn.

For clarity, we are currently 3 ribs, PAX TBC, arriving with you at c.1100hrs Douglas. Please include us in mooring arrangements with the HM. I'll keep you posted by PM with any changes/updates.

Damn shame about those shifty Welsh no-shows* letting the first RIBnet Pan-Celtic Gathering fall over :-)

I will be on the pontoon at Douglas to take your warps on arrival and can then provide you with the necessary information for a good day out !!
If I can get an idea of total numbers I can arrange for appropriate transport.
Is enyone going to need fuel?
