Sunday's plan is to shoot across to Carteret before the gate closes in the morning (9.50 bst) and chill out, maybe have a g&t on my mates hard boat wots got a lid on it

Everyone welcome to tag along for any part
I think we are off to Carteret on Sunday..

Just got back from an excellent day out with Martini and crew, the rowing race was really well attended and Dixcart bay was a very effective oven with people hurling themselves into the water to cool off.

Thanks to Martini for a very good day and for the tour of the shallows and narrows!

Looks like you had a good time in Sark. We had considered an Alderney trip this weekend, but rather fancied lounging in the garden for a change for once. Have done the Sark race day a few times now, usually acting as a guard boat for one of the pairs, but I wasn't needed this year, so decided to give it a miss.

Make sure you keep those shiny new toobs well polished Mart!

Not exactly but similar to the set up you have over there I think. They have a shop on the Albert Quay near the lifeboat station. I could pop in and enquire for you?

Cheers, but only if your passing. I am just weighing up the pros and cons of St H versus Bon Nuit.

Bon Nuit

Hi Mart,

I think you will still be able to get duty free from the shop if you moor at Bon Nuit, just take your SSR book or similar to prove registration of vessel / visiting status.

There are some "local" boats that have retained names similar to "Sarah of Hamble" etc that they openly sell duty free to, this is probably because they think they are visiting.

If you go to Bouley instead of Bon Nuit, feel free to raft alongside my boat or the grey rib off the end of the Pier.

When you coming over, we need to have a chat about some heavy metal !!!

Regards
KarlT

Cheers for the inside track

I had been planning on a day trip on Thursday, got a couple of customers to see and then pick up Jack before returning in time for the Floptilla cruisers.

The blinking WX is all over the place though!

Revitalise this concept!

Hi, sorry to resurrect an old thread.

We are putting together a mailing list of people who would like to be kept up to date with Channel Islands powerboating activities, from on-shore meets to cruises and beyond. There might also be a Facebook group.

The idea is to link through to RIB.net and our own web pages so that everyone can join in when there is something going on. If you want to join the list then let me know by any of the usual ways.
