Yes!!! David (Narcosis) adn I will be there, planning a 9.30-10am launch.

It is going to be cold! come anyway, even if on your own. The sight of three or more 5.4's with Yammie 90's would be cool

Hope to see you Sunday, plus hopefully a few others too.

Back from my skiing in one piece despite ice and rocks!
We are aiming for 1100 launch due to travel from Hants so hope to meet up with you guys at some point along the river . Will have VHF( please advise which channel you will all be on ) with us but I remember last trip that it is not too good on the Thames due to buildings etc . My mobile 07836596619. Any thoughts on lunch around Tower Bridge area , we went to The Dickens inn in St Cats which was a revolting tourist trap so headed over the bridge to a pasta joint which was not a lot better.
I will make a final go no go decision on Wx at 0900 Sun with the aim to be launched at 1100 at Putney .
we have the following boats with us .
Longdog 7m Humber with Discovery tow car
Tex 6m Carson with Discovery
Yellow 4.5 Humber with Discovery
4.5 Sib with Bmw tow

Please do make yourselves known to us either on the slip or by mobile when on the water .
lets hope for sun on sunday !

Just called Limehouse Marina (0207 308 9930) and they have no problem locking us in for a short stay on the visitor moorings for lunch.
I think there are a few places we could eat, but not sure about that (it's a marina, so there must be more than one pub?)

Locking in after 12 should not be a problem. If we take that option would have to call them on Ch 80 from Tower Bridge and they will get the lock ready if at all possible. I'm happy to do the calling if we take this option, as they have my details.

I said there will probably be three or more ribs, they were not too worried about the lack of definite numbers.

Thoughts?

Here goes then..............

1. Stay on M3 to the first junction J1 at Sunbury.

2. Travel approx for 7.1miles from the end of the M3 to the junction where the A205 and the A316 cross. M3 changes to A316, pass through/past Twickenham, crossing several roundabouts and one bridge over the Thames (Twickenham Bridge) passing Richmond town staying on A316 Travel approx for 7.1miles from the end of the M3.

3. At the large set of traffic lights (no roundabout) with a cemetery on the left, take the first right hand filter lane turning on to the A205 for about 400 yards and then take a left staying on the A205.

4. Stay on the A205 for approx 1.95 miles, until you get to the junction that has 2 left turns, one going all most straight on called Queens Ride and the harder left called Rocks Lane, take Queens Ride as though you are going straight on, leaving the A205 which turns slightly to the right.

5. Travel 1.25 miles - Staying on Queens Ride going over a small bridge/railway line, go over a small roundabout, on to the Lower Richmond Road, at which point you will start to see left hand turn signs for Putney embankment. Turn left into one of these small roads and then turn left when you get to the River and drive along until you see a large long slipway hopefully with other ribs launching.


Hope that makes sense. If not, I have PM'd you my mobile as I will be there for about 9.30 to 10.00, so we should be able to guide you in. Or take some ones else's better advice.......
Regards
David

we're back safe and sound.

John, hope you made it back OK and get the engine probs fixed.

Also hope Tex and the yellow humber made it back OK. We thought they were both following us into Limehouse, but Tex seemed to carry on back, so the yellow humber followed in the end.

Hope they all made it back OK and that the guys in the SIB had a good day out too.

Neil
