About that, once everyone has met up at the Needles SWM it is less than 60nm to the waypoint off Braye.

Have a look at the cruise page, there is a rough idea of times:

Yeah im going to pick to boat up tonight, ive got a mooring in ocean village so that would be perfect, as long as you all dont think im shooting myself in the foot with this sized rib? i would of much prefered to take our old 8m stinger which was sold that year
A bit more than 2 hours all in all, what with the trip to the needles plus the needles to Alderney bit you're talking 80 miles plus. With some faffing I would work on 3 - 3.5 hours from Southampton in total.

So you need to carry fuel for 5 hours at least to give a decent reserve.

I don't think we've planned Saturday yet, but I thought we'd signed up for the fish and chips. Generally speaking I think most want to explore by water during the day though if that helps.
