Not sure on exact numbers for me yet (will be at least two). Fancy camping/roughing it on boat.

Your RIB is plenty big enough. In the past I have made this trip in a 5.85 Ribcraft on a number of occasions. Once you have done it in a group with some experienced skippers you will soon build your confidence to this trip and longer. As with any trip watch the weather, plan well ensure you have more than enough fuel to get thier incase the weather turns bad. Don't forget about arranging for fuel at the other end.

Folks, I think we are asking to much for Nick to organise and book B&Bs for everyone, afterall they will require a deposit and if the weather blew up we might not make it. Terefore probably best if individuals make ther own hotel bookings.

Can't remember what the score is with the camp site, last time we just turned up on spec. Brian once the spring arrives could you check to see if two dozen soggy Ribnetters could stay in a field for the night? we should warn them off. The site is quite large, level and has showers, little cafe / shop etc.

Pete

Pete,

Thanks for clarifying that.

Three, maybe four, of us will be joining if that's OK. However, we will be leaving from Salcombe. Is it possible to arrange a rendezvous somewhere – like in the middle of the Channel?! The whole point of the trip is safety in numbers, camaraderie etc., so we’d like to join up as soon as possible. My limited knowledge tells me that Salcombe is nearer the CIs than Southampton or IOW. Any suggestions on this please?

The chart Stu and I used to come back from Brixham to Portsmouth in Nov, had Brixham on the far left, Needles far right and Alderney bottom right with a big empty space in the middle. Arranging to meet a sea could work or equally go horribly wrong. However hopefully there might be others coming from the SW so perhaps a second convoy could be organised to meet at Alderney.

There was talk of a group coming from your direction on the forum sometime last year. Maybe you could have a dig through the threads and resurrect it to coincide with this jaunt. Although looks like we'll be meeting you at Alderney and not mid channel.

Insurance

In preperation of the Journey it might be prudent for those coming along to think about what insurance cover they have. I know my insurance at present doesn't cover me for a trip to Alderney so its something I'm going to have to sort.
