You should be able to get along side Mainbrayce on Saturday morning and that would be much easier than trying to transport cans to either the commercial quay or the breakwater slipway. Why don't you pop in on Friday when you arrive to discuss timing.

I have just checked the tide tables and you should be able to get alongside Mainbrayce in the Inner Harbour until about 10-10.30. We are open from 8am as is the petrol station. Obviously the higher the tide the easier it is.

Assuming reasonable weather, what speed do you Jet-skiers like to cruise at?
We struggle at much under 24 - 25 knots (we come off the plane if we go much below this) but if this matches your comfortable speed we are happy to shadow you and Neil and carry fuel cans etc for you if required.

Can we have a collective 'handle' for the rabble leaving the Solent? Jim and I will be heading out of South Devon and will attempt to make comms on ch72 at some point mid channel.

Last year we ended up being the "Floptilla" - I guess we should be the "Floptilla 2010" this year!
Any other ideas?

Hi Trevor, @ 30 knots is 1/2 throttle, if the conditions are good we can use cruise control, fuel usage is @ the same between 25 - 45 mph.

Sounds good - we're happy to buddy up with and shadow you at least for the run over then - weather permitting we're hoping to do the extra few days in Sark but I'm sure we can make sure you have company for the run back.
