Depending upon the weather forecast, the willingness of the Rowland family aka Pete 7 and co. to venture across & our general resilience come the weekend we are still planning to make it to the Isle.

Of Alderney.

We are never again camping between the lighthouse and the Sunday mornin clay pigeon shoot.

Were going and were camping. Saturday will be a quiet and peaceful night so perhaps we could ask Brian to turn the light house off to save the elecy

Might bin the idea of a BBQ now that there are fewer travelling and go for a good nosh Saturday evening, but open to suggestions.

Alderney Taxi

I have'nt read all of this thread so forgive me if this has been mentioned before but when I was in Alderney in the 1st May bank holiday the taxi had no pontoon to land on and was stopping at 5pm.

The pontoon should be fixed by now but you may want to check.

Sorry cant turn the light out but will pray on your behalf that there isn't fog. The Lighthouse has the most powerful foghorn you have ever heard. It is also 400/500 yds from the campsite!

Pontoon now in place. Water taxi runs later than 1700 hours. Er, exactly when it finishes "depends".

Yes. We were camped near it on a previous trip. It was a dark and stormy night. Oh and foggy. HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! every few minutes along with a bright light sweeping the area was a little difficult during zzzzzs-time.

Any latest weather updates? He's nailing down stuff on the boat.

Solent Softies.

ok, am on the road now till Sat, so probably no access to PC till then.

I understand 1000hrs on Sat, just outside Yarmouth harbour is the push point (i.e. be there just prior). Pressing at 1000hrs, no faffing.

Come on, join the fun.


I will expect about 5 Ribs out of the 30+ who expressed interest. Prove me wrong ................go on.........

See ya there


Steve

Go for it. Forecast isn't brilliant but no high winds forecast. So perfect RIB weather. Want to see loadsb of piccies.

Think of me on nights. But I might be out Tuesday for a thrash.
