Well I look forward to meeting you then, it looks like we'll be coming down rather than up too

Channel 72 is what we used last year and is the or usually used on these things. Having flirted with the idea of trying to use the group mmsi last year - it don't work. Very few even enter their mmsi into the group anyway, and even if you go and find their mmsi's half the world doesn't really know how to use them (ie talking about the French ).

Will maybe begin to get onto the French and dutch a bit more about this as a significant proportion of Ridunan accommodation is already fully booked.

A quick Google seems to suggest Ridunian as the term for people from Alderney. Fair enough then Interesting to find out how it relates though.

I think we're pretty much all booked into one B&B, in fact I think we've taken it over totally At least the threat of camping has gone now

Looking forward to seeing you all either en route or for certain in the bar.

I fancy at least a round the Island trip, get the puffins, dolphins and seals on alert for a serious photo shoot

An historical, possibly Roman name for the Island. There's a belief it just meant island and was applied or confused with the Isle of Wight at some point

Mayday

Ermmm it looks like I am unable to come this year due to a heavy workload.
Is there anyone out there who would like to take over the organising on the Isle of Wight (Vectis) side of the Channel.

As I can't commit 100% I can only offer help or advice.
Sorry
Tim
