And....

Does anyone have the exact tide times and heights for the Friday and how late we can push a RIB up to the fuel pontoon before the water goes away? (For the petrol people)

I really will buy a new almanac next year - honest! (I've got all the year 2000 tide times if anyone is interested!)

Hi Martin,

I just spoke to Charles today and he's about to send out a mailshot with further details of the cruise.

Mike, just sent you some tidal details. (basically it's the same +or- a few mins as Martin's info)

Lymington will be the major departure point - Yacht Club slipway, Bath Road. I recommend that cars and trailers are left elsewhere - the preferred place being Lymington Yacht Haven, less than half a mile away. I think that Mike C has details if anyone still needs to make these arrangements.

Confirmed from Lymington are the following:
Clarky on "Hectic"
Mike C on "Prime RIB II"
Mstacey on "Bob"
Peter L on "Loose Cannon"

Other departure points are as follows:
Southampton/Itchen - Me & Louise on "Blue Ice" and Gordon on "My Pleasure II"
Calshot - Andy Micklewright & family on "Awesome" (subject to Scottish cruise?)
Bembridge - Mike S on Hysucat

There are a few other boats without a departure point confirmed yet, including DJL? Also, Mike and Di??

The earlier we can depart, the better! I plan to stay overnight in S'hampton to prep the boat and have an early start.

We will probably need a mid-channel meet to account for the Easten Solent boats, but that's not been finalised yet. However, the more miles we cover together, the better!

I suggest that VHF Channel 77 is used for communication (please let me know asap if you know that it's used for any official local purpose) and my mobile number will be in the mailshot.

Oh, one other thing to mention... Friday morning will be low (spring) tide on the English side, so launching at Lymington could be sort of impossible? I don't know the slipway very well, but from Mike's Emails, this could be a problem for anyone who hasn't put the boat in the water on Thursday afternoon.

Richard.

OK, info on leaving from Lymington.

Itís suggested the Bath road slip is used, Boatlaunch link isÖ.. http://www.boatlaunch.co.uk/main/sit...athRoad.jpg&w=
A warning though - Itís not so good at low water and it will be low water on Friday morningÖ. This may be a problem as I think low water is about 7am ish, (Iím going to have to buy a bloody almanac!) Maybe we will have to launch the night before! TBA.

Trailer parking should be OK at Lymington Yacht Haven just around the corner but they canít confirm 100% till 3 weeks before, space wise (I think heís just being over cautious). The cost for a 6-metre trailer will be about £3 per day. Iíve said weíll need about 5 spaces.
Car parking will be free at the Yacht Haven provided at least one of us moors overnight with them, (Martin, I think you are!) We will need to leave our keys with them!

If youíre planning to launch on Thursday evening, overnight mooring for a 6-metre boat at the Haven will cost approximately £17. PLEASE BOOK A SPACE IN ADVANCE DIRECT WITH LYMINGTON YACHT HAVEN.

Lymington Yacht Haven phone number is 01590 677071
Web - http://www.yachthavens.com

As for departure times? Well thatís under debate at the moment but it will be early-ish on Friday morning!

Routes and waypoints to follow!

PS,

If it turns out we ALL want to moor over on Thursday night, maybe we could cut a deal on mooring costs, so post here first if you like. After all, we could all raft up..... It aught to be cheaper!

Right

I am booked to moor overnight at Lymington Yacht Haven,

Boat name BOB, 6m (well 5.85) and if they are happy I am quite happy for others to raft up.

I'm staying at the Bosuns Chair with my father and daughter who are making the trip with me.

Hope to see you all there.

Thanks Martin. Its coming together!

One other thought, for people wanting to launch early on Friday, according to Boatlaunch, the Town Quay slip a little further up river is available all states of tide. I've not used or even looked at this slip. Does anyone have any experience of it?
ie, whatís it like at low tide, (still a slope and good depth). And how about access?

Thanks....

Hi all,
Like Martin I've booked Bosun's and a berth at the Yatch Haven. Irrespective of the tide, I don't fancy launching at 6.00am for a 7.00 start! We'll be driving down Thursday pm and preparing the day before. Looking forward to it.
Regards,
Dave

Hi Richard,

I will be departing from Hythe, possibly slipping the night before and leaving her in Hythe Marina over night.

Regards to the Bath Road slip, it will be impossible to launch anything there on a low spring tide - Slip turns in to very soft mud. Would highly recommend launching the night before.

Daniel
