I am going to Herm again this week-end after having a lengthy chat to Adrian who is the 'keeper of Herm. He has offered me two, maybe three moorings at the Rosaire steps. These are quite substantial and can easily hold 2 or 3 ribs rafted together. The second option are the moorings just outside the harbour, we can have 4 of those, these dry out. The third option is to go into the harbour, this is where the second anchor comes in, and dry out on the sandy beach anchoring for and aft.
Make sense?
Another option of course would be to leave your rib in Gsy and have one rib ferry people across, your choice.

Pete7 - thanks for that, I had similar quotes for the anchor but, add a length of chain and say, 50m rope and there's the ton!

Charles - for personal preference I would go for a mooring or anchor where the boat won't dry out. Unless the tides work out, it would be very frustrating not to be able to get around having made the trip over.

I'll go with the flow and will get the second anchor if necessary.

Regards,
Dave

Dave, I will bring a couple of extra 30m ropes for us to use especially during the day if we call in anywhere. Suggest 5m of chain and a lead / iron weight which will achieve the same thing. I could bring a suitable weight if you need one (about 7 kg).

I have left Charles instructions at home but think low water is during the day which will suit as we will be out and about. The one tricky bit is having moored the boats up in the evening getting the last person ashore. Either we find a small sib or do a drysuit and fins swim from the boats to shore. Don't worry to much we will find a solution, or as Charles suggests, raft them up together on a fixed bouy.

For Richard, if you need a hand with the co ordinates and chartwork just shout,

Pete

I have a sib- so there will be no problems with it being the nominated taxi.
I suggest the following - once we are all together at Herm I will show everyone the options for mooring and based on that you can decide what you want to do - ok?

Viewing the moorings is an excellent idea.

Rafting up at Rosaire steps sounds good.

Dont forget if you get a few anchors together and raft a few boats you can anchor by Putranez which is just below the camp site and 3 mins walk down the path, its doesnt get swept by the tide and you can come in far enough not to dry out. I am no there this weekend Charles or I would show you but it is a good place for people to consider.

Trailer Parking Lymington

To all going from Lymington,

I've just spoken to Lymington Yacht Haven and they now seem confident that they can accommodate 5 or so trailers for overnight parking during our trip. Please note though that space is limited. Therefore, all those who are intending to store their trailer at the Yacht Haven and haven't already done so, are advised to book a space ASAP.

Please either call them on 01590 677071 and ask for 'The Yard' or preferably fax details, (ie dates your leaving it and also, length of trailer). Their fax number is 0590 670817.

Mention itís the BIBOA/RIBNET cruise and I think they have my name in their diary too, so that might help! (Mike Carson).

See you all Friday 29th at 9AM!

It is with some regret that I must now pull out of the Herm trip. After playing host to Portsmouth Television to film Alan coming home I went to refuel at Camper and Nicholsons. Whilst tied up a yacht rammed Old Spice at 3 knots whilst also trying to moor up. Damage includes shattered top of transom ,a frame bolts pulled through the deck and it bent the 2" frame, tube flanges torn. Looks like Halmatic will be busy in September the earliest they can fit her in and my preferred choice of boat yard.

Interestingly as the yachtie was giving me his name and address he explained that he had problems with the gears and throttle but hadn't got round to fixing them. He sailed off for 10 days in the West Country whilst I limped back to Halsar creek. I will post some pics when the boat is lifted out.

I can't believe half an hour earlier we brought 40 ribs through the enterance of one of the busiest harbours in the world at 10 knots in close formation on a scorching August Saturday without a hickup and this w***er couldn't even park a yacht in calm conditions in a marina.

Thanks to Charles for finding space for me, and I hope you have a great weekend, perhaps next year.

Peter

Ooof, shame to hear that Pete. You give him a good dose of verbal abuse or be civilised about the whole thing? Stupid tw*t stopping you going on the Herm cruise, and depriving everyone else of your company! That man needs a meda...locking up.

Hope you get it fixed soon mate.

Matt
