I'm interested subject to work, will only know nearer the time though...


This might make that weekend busy as well...

"Mainbrayce along with other local organisations is planning an open race/rally for cruising yachts over the summer solstice weekend (20/21st June). There will be a party and prize giving afterwoulds for the more adventurous! Please e-mail your interest as we need to limit the number of entrants. "

We are just waiting for the Harbourmaster go ahead, health and safety etc. But from March onwards there will be an ad hoc service etc.

As for the weekend of the 20th-21st June, its a solstice race for yachts but the Harbour master is limiting the sailing yachts to 30, so there will be space for ribs and there will be a beach barbecue, and a sponsor so this may tempt!

Hi Tim, hows it going?

Not been to Alderney in a RIB before, could be up for it but I would need to squeeze in on another boat if someone had room/wanted company as I don't think I would take mine

Mr Nikon and friends would of course accompany me

We have a wide choice of moorings here Biff, all of them swinging!

One of the lifeboat crew has a B&B, if you let me know numbers I can see if he is in the mood for a nice RIB.net deal for you.
