Petrol - Alderney

Hi there, Malthouse is spot on regarding the fuel. Diesel or petrol is easier if you come along the wall at the inner harbour. Due to some issues over the delivery system we are still supplying petrol in a very analogue manner, but as long as we know how much is needed in how many boats then we will do our best to help. The price is a little cheaper than the petrol at the station and we take the sting out of lugging it.

I am just fueling up now for a return trip to Lymington this weekend, should take me 2 hours each way. Its boring but cheaper than fueling in the Hamble or Lymington or Cowes.

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

Cheers

Rupert

Not sure what type of Ribs coming ; but will work on a speed of 25 knots
from Fairway Buoy . As we will be approaching Bray at low tide ; suggest
you pass leading marks White Cone on Douglas Quay in transit line
with Church to avoid submerged part of the Sea Wall to all Rib Owners.
Regards Tiffy
PS will we dine in First and Last , if so may need to book

Do you mean it takes you 2 hrs from Braye - Lymington, or it takes 2hrs to refuel?

Tiff check your tide tables mate we are working on HW Dover for our tidal hours as want to arrive around fairly slack water .HW Dover 27th of June 14:22 UT .

No takers for Poole luch trip this weekend as most of those coming to Alderney have other things planned so unless I hear otherwise see you on the 27th please email me your passage plan details and expected time of departure from the fairway buoy.
Cheers

In terms of tides for arrival in Braye...

Sat 27th:
HW 1025 5.9m
Slack Water 1300
LW 1700 1.1m
Slack Water 1930

The approach in from the north is good, plenty of scope for tide.

Dinner at F&L

Rita is always busy, so booking early is good.

Failing that the Harbour lights does good food, lobster currently 14 which is cheap.
