Anyone south of the Channel going to Ribex 2010?

Never made it last year due to mechanical issues plus iirc weather wasn't great.

Any other Channel Islanders interested?

Shame, but let me know if you do.

Also I have plenty of room for passengers but would like to see other boats join me as well

Ribex or cross channel? Been to Ribex a few times, cross channel I picked up a 24ft Osprey from Southampton and brought it back, that's about it. Weather was good, SW F3ish, fairly pleasant trip although the breaking surf off the Needles was slightly disconcerting as we approached!

Thinking about this further, I'm thinking leave Jersey friday afternoon and stop the night in Alderney, doing the rest of the trip bright and early next morning to get a full day at the show. Couple of beers in the evening, b&b and back home again sunday.

Yep Ribex,

Ive never been but heard very good stories.
browsing over the website quite alot over the past few months.

Yes I think a stop in Alderney would be Good, and Give me a chance to re fuel.
I would make it from Jersey with about 30-40Ltrs to spare (if my calculations are correct!) But I would rather have a full tank!
You got many going over with you at the moment?

Went to the 1st Ribex in Weymouth and couple of times in Southampton, it's a good day out although quite a few other people think the same

30 litres is probably stretching your luck , what size is your tank? I should be able to do the whole trip on a tank but will probably top up a bit in Cowes based on what I use to get there.

Just me going so far, only started thinking about it today

Yea I'd like to have a bit more than that just for the unforseen!
Its a 110ltr tank and I got 60ltr reserve. so 170ltr built in.
based on previous trips to Alderney ive used between 50-70ltrs getting there so I'm looking at using 130ltrs getting there from Jersey providing everything went to plan. So a stop in Alderney would put my mind at ease.

Ive done the trip twice before on other boats, but would like to take this boat across as its my own!

Might be easier / cheaper to let the plane take the strain, high speed ferry from Soton tickets are normally half price via Ribex website.

I made an idle enquiry about accommodation with a sailing club on the Hampshire side of the Solent... 60 per night for a triple room, is there anything is Cowes of that price?

(Still probably not going, but I can dream)

It would be great to see everyone here before the crossing in any case, perhaps a bit of lunch and a weather/traffic check.
