Sounds like you're going to have a busy weekend, Dom!

I don't know what the Gurnsey fuelling arrangements are like, but I guess that your assistance would remove the dependancy on tidal access?

How about a list of the runners please, then we will all know whos going and can make appropriate plans for departure in company, meeting points ?

Have to check on the situation in Exmouth, a lot of building work is going on around the docks and parking was a problem when I was last down, hope to get down in the next week to take a look.
If its a no go then will have to review where evrybody else is leaving from.

Martin,
Based on the lack of response, I'll probably launch at Lymington.

Hi Richard and Louise, consider yourselves official co-ordinators of the departure
I will e-mail you what I have thus far and you can begin dispersing this info to all and sundry. I had to look up where Exmouth was this morning, so your local Brittania knowledge would be handy!

Richard & Louise,

I'd be happy to lend a hand organising a Solent departure. Lymington Yacht Harbour quoted me very reasonable car and trailer parking the other week, so we could probably arrange a block booking!? Launching is round the corner at the public slip.

My provisional plan at the moment is to launch Thursday evening and stay on a pontoon so we can leave early on Friday morning. (Previous post mentioned 7AM - YUK!).

I'm off to work now, and busy tomorrow, but will e-mail you by Thursday to see if you would like some help!

Mike C

That sounds like a good idea, Mike, 'specially if we head out to East Solent first. Time to get the charts out!

Charles........ One for you! (Or any Herm-ite who may be reading this)

I've just been looking at the chart for Herm and I'm a bit concerned about mooring. Apparently all the mooring buoys dry, so are you planning on drying on the beach, just anchoring off, or do you have a 'cunning plan'?

Problem is, I'm not sure if I can get my leg up high enough for drying, (if you'll pardon the expression) and need to check insurance if overnighting on an anchor!

Mike - I hope I tied that knot tight enough - C

Hi Mike-
Not true, if you study the charts carefully, in the south west corner(ish) you will see the Rosaire Steps, with a chaneel that runs past it. This does not dry out. In fact the Trident ferry which services Herm from Gsy uses this spot at low tide for emabarcation etc.
A good anchor is a must!
