The links to Alderney point you in the right direction for accommodation, Martin can also give you details of places to stay.
Fuel wise we were fine last year although beaware of the containers used better to bring your own, as had a couple of boats come up with alarms regarding water in fuel.
Is Avocet and Mustard coming again ?
If we could start to make a list so we have a rough idea on numbers

We are concerned about your comments regarding water in your fuel. We only ever use the same containers for petrol and generally they are filled on a daily basis with them always being checked for any signs of contamination. As far as I can recall when you all visited last year we either filled your own containers or ours were being filled and then immediately emptied into your boats. We sold over 15,000 litres of petrol in a similar manner last year and this is the first comments we have received of this nature. We also treat our diesel with similar care and attention and again have had no negative comments. We have invested in some new cans for this season which are not only larger but also have nozzles and we have bigger syphons for transferring from cans so hopefully the whole process will be a little more efficient.
Although petrol prices have risen substantially over the last few months - the pump price here is now 122.5p a litre we generally offer 7p a litre of this. If you can keep us posted as to your requirements I'm sure we can arrange a RIBnet price for not only petrol but also oil and any VAT free chandlery.
We look forward to seeing you all again and I will double check with the harbour that no other flotillas, races etc are due here that w/e.
