Anyone interested in gathering Folkestone/Dover areas?

Hi just wondering if anyone was interested in gathering Folkestone/Dover ish areas? All the other gatherings seem to be Portsmouth or Dorset areas!

There must be a few of us ribbers around the South East?

Hi - not too far from me then!!

I currently launch at Rye, there must be a few of us on the marsh.

How long does it take to get to Herne Bay with trailer? and whats the slip like?

Have you tried Folkestone at all? There is a slip on boatlaunch but not sure where it is..

All our council are interested in is Flying!! lol - certainly not fixing the roads!!

What sort of days do you get to go out?

Mike

Excuse my ignorance, what is j.a.w.s? Are there launching charges and the car parks trailer friendly?

Would be worth a trip out for some play time..

hi, folkestone has a slip but parking is awkward, sandgate is a no goer, it took about 40 min to get to herne bay and the slip looked good will be off there son as clocks change and i get my prop back from being repaired. Fridays and sats are my weekend. There must be ribbers around this area.
