Does that mean that you can now get ashore for lunch without having to wait for the taxi to finish his own (protracted) lunch first?

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 David,

We have refueled in Yarmouth before without problem, so may take a splash to top tanks, I'll be the fat one in an Orange skid lid. LOL

Regarding fuel, The ski fuel tanks hold @ 65ltrs and will require @ 45/50ltrs for the trip, we plan to bring cans with us.

Thanks to Tim G for letting us come along and keeping us informed.

Paul

RIB.net Names

I think we should write our RIB.net 'names' on Duck tape and stick them on the sides of our consoles.

Am I being nerdy or is this a good idea?

1100 kick off at Fairway buoy
I will be on boat Cin Sirrah Ocean 8 metre
Radio checks to be made on 72
Every one should be organised by now I will be at the back of the fleet acting as sweeper for the jet skis please make them welcome and look out for them as they are a hardy bunch of slightly mad nutters.


For some this will be the first time across the Channel so do please buddy up with someone of similar boat size and engine and look out for each other.

No closer than 50 metres to another boat please .

Appears we will all be taking advantage of the meal deal and drinks in the Yacht Club.

I am looking forward to meeting some new faces and please bring your cameras so they can be posted on Rib.net

Weather is still ok at the moment skippers decision if they go .

Tim

The Alderney Sailing club bar normally has fixed opening hours, although arrangements can usually be made for special visits for it to open so this may need checking. I'll try and find out from a club committee member.

Top stuff. We will be listening out on Ch72 from 1200 and are available on Ch80 once you are in the harbour, let us know if you need anything.
