Tim Griffin has done all the organising.

I am hoping to use the Harbour Lights for accom and evening meals for powerboat training/experience weekends so Saturday night is a great chance to see what happens when the island's population is doubled by RIB heads.

Morning everyone, I'm Paul and one of the Jetski guys who will be making the trip to Alderney with you, we are also staying at The Harbour Lights and have made arrangements to join you at the evening meal.

Hoping the weather will play ball and look forward to meeting up at the Fairway Buoy.

Paul

Pontoon?? You'd be lucky This is Alderney. Civilisation is still some miles away. Rafting up on visitors buoys or dropping anchor are the only options. Anchoring being a little cheaper per night.

Don't tell me, about 35 miles due south?

Things are now a bit more civilised this year - the water taxi is being operated in an efficient and professional manner which means you can get ashore without too much fuss.

Current Alderney Fuel Price and arrangements?

If you bring extra cans you can take some more back with you.

Hi Rupert
I guess that many of us will want to fuel up in Alderney - Can you post the current price of Petrol from Mainbrayce so we know how many suitcases of cash we need to bring to fill up the boat(s) (or do you take credit cards)?
It also might be worth making it clear if we need to let you know what sort of quantities of fuel (and what type) we might be wanting if you need to arrange anything in advance. To those that have been before this may be obvious, but for us 1st timers we're probably all thinking the same questions.
In case it needs arranging in advance - I think I'll be wanting about 100 Litres of petrol please.
Do I need to bring my own Jerry cans that you will fill with fuel for me, or do you have enough of your own?
Many Thanks. Trevor

Hi Paul and welcome to Ribnet.

We'll be waiting in Yarmouth harbour for you and the others by 10.00am on Saturday (more coffee available there and considerably more comfortable than bobbing around by the Fairway Buoy! ). I don't think that jet-skis are allowed in the harbour but hopefully one of the boats will stick its head in for us or otherwise give us a shout

Weather forecast on http://www.xcweather.co.uk/GB/forecast seems to have improved again (although the Met Office remain eternally pessimistic: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/...t_weather.html).

Looking forward to seeing you all.

David

Hi Rupert

As Trevor says in his last post....

Am hoping to bring 2 x 20l cans of petrol for reserve use.

At 25 knots cruising speed, I'm likely to need just shy of 100l of petrol, if it needs to be pre-booked (or even if it doesn't!).

Looking forward to meeting you.

Harbour Lights

They have proposed a menu as follows, but this relies on a minimum of 16 people committing. Please let me know ASAP as I personally quite fancy it...


STARTER
King prawns with ginger, lemon grass, sweet chilli.

MAIN COURSE

Chargrilled steak served plain or with a pepper, mushroom or stilton sauce and served with french Fries
or
Skate wing with a capers and pesto sauce served with French fries

DESSERT
Ice cream


Of the 16 required, we have Tim x2, Tony x2, Trevor x2 plus me x2 (my name does not start with a T though). So we are half way there!

The weather looks good
Martin

I would be greatful if you would add Mick Balch + 2 for dinner on saturday night.

Thank you.

I like to be uncivilised sometimes though

Glad to hear the taxi is now being properly run. It's only taken 4 years or so to get there!
