I understand Pete7 is now (de facto) leading this.
And yes, the petrol station is open 0800-1800 hours Mon to Sat and 1000-1200 Sundays.

Time to get a grip gentlemen after 20 pages on this thread of nancying about!

Over organising something like this can make it much more complicated than it needs to be. It might be best if Brian just declares what time he'll be in the pub, and anyone who gets there can buy him a drink.

Given good weather it's a very straightforward crossing - just do it. If you're not happy with the forecast on the day, don't go.

Instead of trying to put a flotilla together, why not get together in twos or threes and all meet up when you get there? This will almost always be more satisfactory than trying to keep a big group together. In the time it takes to assemble a couple of dozen RIBs off Calshott you could be halfway across!

Find someone with a similar size boat and PM them and see what you can arrange . . .

If you're not comfortable doing your first cross channel in your own boat, then why not see if you can crew for someone more experienced?

Fingers crossed for the weather

John

How much is the fuel there? And, how bothered are they about filling up non-regulation fuel cans?

Its a full size petrol station, 200m from the harbour, downhill on the way back to the boats, a shopping trolley could be useful.

Agreed, okay assuming good weather Paul and Kath on Merlin are joining Viv and I on Old Spice. Plan to depart Yarmouth IOW at 10 am (after filling up) on Saturday 16th. Since its not a race we will be looking for a comfortable cruise speed of 20 - 24 knots, with a coffee stop half way.

If its bad weather we are staying in bed.

It would be useful to know who is coming along. Could I ask for a short post, with boat name, colours and size, and numbers on board of those who plan to come along, thanks

Old Spice, Grey & White, 6.5m, 2 crew

Pete & Viv
