BIBOA Dartmouth Cruise - Friday 22 to Monday 25 June 2007

Morning Folks,

Its that time of year again when we invade Dartmouth for a few days. This event is ideal for everyone from new comers to experienced cruisers.

Dartmouth is a lovely place and is surrounded by great cruising ground. The rough plan is as follows.

Friday 22nd June - Depart from Yarmouth around 10am for the run to Dartmouth, Possibly stopping at Weymouth.

Saturday 23rd June - Relaxing day with a run to Salcombe

Sunday 24th June - Cruise to Torquay, Exmouth and possibly explore Lyme Bay

Monday 25th June - Depart Dartmouth around 10am for the return run to Yarmouth.

This really is a great cruise and I hope many of you can join us. Dartmouth around this time of year is very busy so booking accommodation early is advised.

Kind Regards

Julian Lyas

And if you're going to Ribex you can join BIBOA while you're there. BIBOA's stand is right next to the Fastnet Brasserie so the ideal place to meet up, hang out and chat to fellow ribsters. We look forward to seeing old and new members there!

Morning Martin,

All is well with us, boat is up and running well. Would be great if you can make it, im sure Dave can sort you out in time.

Plan will be to meet at Yarmouth Friday morning at 10am for the run. I am booking the Indian reasturant again for Friday as it went down well with people last year etc. Were have a run about to Salcombe, Torquay Lyme Bay etc.

All the best

Julian

Hi Julian

Is there dockside petrol available in Dartmouth? On Google earth there is a picture of a large fuel barge, I assume that is for the public?

Ollie

PS Flights and hotel now booked, fingers crossed for the weather.....

Dartmouth 22nd June

Hi Rosie,

I was hopeing you got my email about the trip. I shall pencil you in. Accomodation is getting a bit busy so if you can book something now that would be best.

I found this site useful

http://www.discoverdartmouth.com/accommodation.php

The phone number is tel: 01803 834224

Oli, There is petrol in Dartmouth on both sides of the river, or at least there was last year. We can always pop into Torquay and get some if needed anyway.

All the best

Julian

Morning,

The curry house in now booked for Friday 22nd for us all. I hope you have all managed to find some accomodation without too many problems.

I am just booking the marina for us. I will try and book Dart Marina as I did last year again, Handy for Olie as his boat will be out side his bedroom.

Will update you all over the weekend.

All the best

Julian

Dartmouth 2007

Hi All,

Just to let you know.

I have booked the following :

Friday 22nd June - Spice Bazaar restaurant for 7pm (cant do any later)
Saturday 23rd June - Floating Bridge pub for 8pm

I have spoken to the marina and they cant take advance bookings again, we just have to wait and see on the day, the guy says it should be fine as they have a lot of boat away in June. Not overly helpful but we had the same thing last year and all of us managed to get in.

Cheers

Julian
