Hi, I may be up for this, I will know closer to the time.
Can you confirm we are going out on the 5th and back on the 6th?

Thanks
Lee

If any of you plan to stay overnight accommodation is very difficult UNLESS you use a campsite, then we can probably sort you out. Also, if staying overnight it may be better to moor in the inner harbour. However, access is limited to circa High Water + or - 3 hrs and low water is around Midday on 5 Jun. We can sort out all these issues with a little pre-planning and would look forward to seeing lots of you over here. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks for the heads-up on that Cypman*. Not having been in the loop last year, I'd completely missed the connection with the TT! A question to all really - is the plan this time to simply refuel on the IOM and RTB on the same day or is there an overnight planned by some (tricky as Cypman says)? Does anyone actually plan to attend TT related activities? I'm weighing up the pros and cons


* I had a great day out on your previous rib Lemon Zest last year, once my Landrover's battery got her started!

We could top up the tanks and keep going for the next rock, if the Lemonade doesn't travel I will

I'd probably head back the same day if given the choice. If the weather blew up overnight it would be a nightmare and i can't be bothered with the whole camping melarchy of taking gear, checking in, setting up.....it goes on.

Ideally I'd leave pretty early. I believe it is circa 55 miles from Anglesey/conwy. With a 20knot average its about 3-4 hours there unless it is like glass. Have a couple of hours at most on IOM to include a quick viewing of some nutters on bikes, beer, burger and boat fuel if needed, then RTB. With much more beverage to celebrate. Open to suggestions though.

Anyone any ideas of high water time on the sat?

I would be interested in staying over dependent on the weather as I will have the missus and daughter with me.
I'll bring the tent!

I'll be going there and back the same day.... hopefully. How far is it from the black pool area to IOM?

Might not be enough space on deck for fuel!
